Improving the Quality and Yields of Leafy Greens and Herbs with Nanobubbles
Revol Greens, a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse located in Medford, Minnesota, is committed to growing premium quality leafy greens all year-round. Efficiency and optimization of the greenhouse environment are critical to overcome the challenges of the extreme temperature shifts between summer and winter.
The Revol team was looking to improve the water quality in their very large deep-water culture ponds. The challenge to efficiently aerate
each 105,000 gallon / 400 m3 pond and maintain a dissolved oxygen level above saturation made Moleaer an ideal candidate to replace its existing aeration system.
Moleaer’s Bloom nanobubble generator allows for super saturating irrigation water with oxygen nanobubbles. This has proven to increase nutrient uptake and improve plant development and yields by up to 30%. In some cases, it can be a substitute for water cooling. Elevated oxygen levels promote aerobic, beneficial organisms in the root zone, and reduce Pythium levels.
- Increased nutrient uptake and improved plant development
- Increased yields by up to 30%
- 15% Average Yield Increase
- Increased Dissolved Oxygen by 180%
- Reduction in Pythium by 80%
“We are thrilled with the results we have seen since installing Moleaer’s nanobubble technology. The ability of the system to promote plant growth is substantial to our bottom line. The on-average 15% improvement in our yields was very surprising. This proven technology will be standardized into our current and future facilities.” — Steve Amundson, Partner & Head Grower, Revol Greens
