Plant Oxygen Enrichment

In the Spring of 2020, trials were conducted by Delphy Research Institute in the Netherlands to examine the effects that oxygen nanobubble enrichment of irrigation had on strawberry cultivation. The trial concluded:

  • Plants irrigated with oxygen nanobubbles had a 14% yield increase compared to untreated plants (8.2Kg vs 7.2Kg)
  • Pythium counts were 74% lower in samples treated vs. the untreated control group
  • Plants irrigated with oxygen nanobubbles had healthier root mass and lower instances of disease (Phytophthora)

The theory behind it is that oxygen plays an important role both in the nutrient uptake of roots and in the biology in the root environment.
