Biocontrol of algae, a project for the recovery of water for irrigation purposes

AGRICULTURAL SUSTAINABILITY 

At ARQUIMEA Agrotech we are working on the development of a product of natural origin with the capacity to eliminate the algae that grow in irrigation reservoirs.

This bioproduct will not only prevent the emergence and growth of algae, but will also contribute to the development of agricultural crops.

Additionally, this bioproduct could replace current chemical treatments used to combat algae.

WATER, A VITAL RESOURCE FOR NATIONAL AGRICULTURE

Irrigated crops account for almost a quarter of the land under cultivation in Spain. Reservoirs and tanks play a key role in the development of these crops and can provide them with irrigation water.

However, contamination of the accumulated water can have consequences such as the proliferation of pathogens, eutrophication, odours and technical defects.

 

DUAL POSITIVE EFFECT ON IRRIGATED CROPS

The bioproduct will not only put an end to algae pollution in irrigation water reservoirs, but will also have a positive influence on crop development
