Pre-sowing Seed Soaking

Pre-sowing seed soaking in CO2 GANS liquid plasma decontaminates and restores vitality to adulterated or disease infected seeds, thus ensuring healthy and faster-growing crops.

Irrigation of field crops with CO2 GANS liquid plasma

In the field, irrigation of plants with CO2 GANS liquid plasma virtually eliminates the need for fertilizers and pesticides. In addition to CO2 GANS liquid plasma, CH3 and ZnO GANS liquid plasmas also enhance the growth of crops. CH3 liquid plasma enhances crop growth by giving energy while ZnO liquid plasma enhances plant emotions and crop health. Various researches have shown faster, healthier, and early maturity of crops whose seeds were soaked in CO2 liquid plasma. Further, crops that were soaked before sowing and subsequently irrigated with CO2 liquid plasma alone or in combinations with either CH3, ZnO, or both CH3 and ZnO GANS liquid plasmas consistently showed significantly faster growth, early maturity, and increased health.

Relative growth of Oats: Oats plants irrigated with H2O (left) and oats plants irrigated with CO2 GANS liquid plasma (right) – seeds of the two treatments were soaked for 3 hours before sowing in water (left) and in CO2 GANS liquid plasma (right). Both crops were sown on 5/21/17, and the pictures were taken on 8/6/17.

Magnetic gravitational fields effects of CO2 GANS liquid plasma on plant growth

Research on the effects of magnetic gravitational fields of various liquid plasmas has shown improved growth, early maturity, and improved health similar to that shown by CO2 GANS liquid plasmas. In Kenya, oats plants that were exposed to fields of bottled CO2 liquid plasma grew faster, matured earlier, were healthier, and had a darker green color than oat plants that were not exposed to CO2 liquid plasma magnetic gravitational fields.

Effects of CO2 GANS magnetic gravitational fields on growth of oats: Oats seeds were soaked for 3 hours before sowing on 2/28/17. These pictures were taken on 3/25/17 (left), and 8/6/17 (right).

Changes to soil pH with CO2 liquid plasma enhances crop adaptation and growth

Irrigation of crops with CO2 GANS liquid plasma increases alkalinity in soils resulting in increased soil pH. Increased soil pH, in turn, supports the growth of plants that are usually well suited for alkaline soils in areas with acidic soils. An ongoing study in an area with acidic soils in Kenya has shown vigorous growth and successful seeding of Medicago rigidula plants. Medicago rigidula usually grows in Mediterranean type climates that have alkaline soils.

Effects of CO2 GANS on crop diseases and pests

For plant diseases, CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates conditions in the plant environment under which those diseases cannot exist. For example, CO2 GANS patches have been successfully used against diseases as well as plants’ physical injuries. For crop pests, application of CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates conditions under which the pests do not damage crops. In addition, pests also absorb the energy of the applied CO2 GANS liquid plasma. Such pests have little or no need of feeding on the crops, thus the application of CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates conditions that benefit both the crops and their erstwhile pests.

Effects of CO2 liquid plasma on crops and the environment

CO2 GANS are increasingly used to transform agriculture and environmental management practices across the world. While CO2 GANS liquid plasma is now widely used to decontaminate seeds and for irrigating field crops, it has also been shown to clean the environment in new ways. A study in a hydroponic farm in Australia found that bottles with CO2 GANS liquid plasma that were placed in pipes channeling chemical nutrients for plants attracted and held the smell of the chemicals within, and thus cleaned the crop environment. The smell was only noticed when the CO2 liquid plasma bottles were opened, showing that CO2 GANS liquid plasma has great potential for environmental clean-up for not only crop environments but also for polluted cities and other such environments.
