Reducing Frequent Abiotic Plant Stress in Australia
Within the agricultural sector, crop production is rarely ever free from stressors, with climate change now posing an even larger threat. A major challenge faced in the industry is how to cope and alleviate plant environmental stress, so that it remains viable for the economy whilst also maintaining a positive environmental impact. Stressors manipulating plant growth are problems such as soil mineral deficiency and toxicity and salinity levels. Combatting these stressors with a generation of crops that can withstand these impacts is an ideal solution, but it is also vital to provide quality, controlled water conditioning equipment for hard water treatment. This is where Hydrosmart comes in.
Hydrosmart’s Hard Water Treatment
Hydrosmart technology functions to combat issues associated with hard water treatment, that directly affect plant growth in agricultural and domestic environments. Salinity in soil occurs both naturally and through man-made processes that result in the accumulation of dissolved salts in soil water, if these levels are not monitored, salinity can cause an inhibition of crop growth.
High levels of salt in soil can be associated with the natural processes of:
- Weathering of surrounding materials containing soluble salts
- Deposition where salt is carried in wind and rain
And through human-induced activity:
- Land clearing and crop replacement
- Irrigation systems containing high salinity water or that have ineffective drainage

Controlling Soil Salinity with Hydrosmart’s Unique Technology
Most irrigation systems supply water high in salt and, as plants do not have the capacity to absorb it, the salt accumulates in the root zone of the soil. To rid the soil of this excess salt, more water than is required must be applied, ultimately leading to water logging if drainage is inadequate.
Hydrosmart water conditioning technology is a sustainable, controlled, and cost-effective, compared to other treatments. Resonance frequencies emitted from Hydrosmart products allow the breaking down of bonds in scale, oxides, and salts, neutralising excess mineral content in hard water systems. Even with less water applied to soil root zones, Hydrosmart leeches excess amounts of salt crystals away from plant roots, reducing water consumption, promoting crop yield and preventing further damage to soil content.
