Oh wait. Never mind:
In most cases it simulates photosynthesis converting those essential nutrients into energy.
Huh? That isn't what photosynthesis does. But if you are "simulating photosynthesis" why bother with growing plants at all?
Vi~Aqua works by altering the configuration of hydrogen in water.
'Makes water wetter' simply means the radio frequency generated affects the hydrogen / oxygen bonds that lowers the surface tension of the water.
Lowering the surface tension of water is commonly known as 'wetter water'...a similar thing is done by adding dish soap to water to wash your
dishes, or indeed, adding soap to yourself enables the water you're washing in to adhere to your body and remove dirt and grime.
The radio frequency the inventors mention is 27MHz, the antenna is submerged in the flow of water at the inlet (from hose, in can, bucket, pool, etc)
and 'treats' the water with the radio frequency, which alters the H bonds.
Up to 47% more mass, 30% less water and nutrients and much fewer pesticides and herbicides are needed. Plants also show marked resistance to molds and
fungus, and adverse temps and weather.
For years experimenters have been playing with this concept, but it was slightly different to this latest incarnation of the technology. Previously,
electrodes were placed into the soil on opposite sides of an established plant, and a low voltage/current was passed between the electrodes (usually
from a small battery). The charge passed through the soil gap and of course the plant roots and was said to increase growth factors and disease
resistance by quite a fair and measurable margin.
A similar thing was mentioned recently whereby people were experimenting with seed treatment.
A seed (or handful of seeds) were placed in a high voltage, static field for up to a day.
The result is that the seeds have a much higher germination rate, the plant grows faster, healthier and produces anything up to 50% more yield, while
requiring less nutrients and water. The plants were also said to require virtually no pesticides or herbicides either.
Similar principle to this latest one by the sound of it.
Indian Tea farmers are also trialling this Irish version of the tech...they're claiming up to 47% greater plant mass, and a lot less water required
