One of the most pressing problems faced by the world’s population is that the amount of fertile soil available for use is shrinking each year. Damaging environmental practices have caused soil salinity in certain regions to increase dramatically, compromising not only plant growth, but also water supply. At Hydrosmart, we are committed to solving this problem with our innovative water treatment technology, which makes even toxic saline water usable for industrial and agricultural applications.
How Does Salinity Affect Crops?
Soil which is high in salinity causes an increase in osmotic pressure which greatly reduces water retention. Crops also find it increasingly difficult to hydrate themselves, leading to large scale damage and decreased productivity. Highly saline water causes disruption in the absorption of minerals and ions released by salt, replacing beneficial ions such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. The accumulation of toxic ions can also have long lasting effects on soil productivity.
How Can Hydrosmart Salt Water Treatment Systems Help?
Hydrosmart’s universal salt water treatment systems are specially designed for water desalination applications. They treat water to make it usable for a wide range of crops, which cannot grow in toxic saline water. Unlike traditional water desalination systems, Hydrosmart systems require no maintenance, are environmentally friendly, cost effective and suited to all types of soil. By restructuring the way salt and water interact, Hydrosmart helps remove salt deposits from pipes as well as plant roots by leaching away deeper via gravity once treated water is applied.
When it comes to turf management, Hydrosmart systems have demonstrably reduced salinity levels in soil, and vintners have reported record harvests and an increase in grape quality.
Benefits of Hydrosmart Hard Water Systems
Just some of the benefits of Hydrosmart hard water systems are:
- Elimination of mineral scaling in irrigation pipes
- Stronger, more durable turf
- Impressive harvests in areas with high salinity water
- Significant reduction in fertiliser use
- Improved water retention in all types of soil
