Studies have revealed that irrigation water is one of the major sources of many common plant infections.
With this in mind, Intrahorti has developed Intra Hydropure, a cleaner and disinfectant that treats the entire drinking water system thoroughly, easily and efficiently.
Intra Hydropure is a globally authorized biocidal product, according to different regulations. The product’s accreditations include CTGB-, DEFRA-, NSF and certifications. This means the product’s efficacy was demonstrated into detail and was considered safe for users, plants and the environment.
Cleaning is more important than disinfection
The most underestimated problem in intensive greenhouse production is irrigation water quality. Growers often assess the irrigation water based on the quality at the source, whereas the quality of the water further down the line in the irrigation system is much poorer, containing pathogenic micro-organisms.
Biofilm is the ideal breeding ground for pathogenic micro-organisms. In addition, in the biofilm, these micro-organisms are often protected against chlorine and acids.
Dual action Intra Hydropure
It is important to make the irrigation system pathogen free, to prevent the transmission of micro-organisms through the irrigation system to the plants. Intra Hydropure has a dual action: not only does it remove the biofilm, it also kills all the micro-organisms present. By removing the biofilm, 99% of all micro-organisms will be removed, and the remaining pathogens will not stand a chance to protect themselves from disinfectants.
