Electronic system for generating nano-particulate nutrient water for irrigation has been developed by MeMDRL-UTSA. Various nano-particles and their concentrations for controlling the increased intermolecular energy and surface energy of water have been studied to monitor characteristics of soil and plant development. Nano-particulate nutrient water has been shown to suppress 18% water evaporation in tomato plant samples in the Environmental Plant Biology Lab at UTSA. In addition, the water helped plants to grow faster and healthier compared to other plants without the nano-particulate water.
An electronic system for monitoring plants’ health has been prototyped and tested. This is a novel concept for diagnosing the health status of plants. Another electronic system has been developed that allows some crops’ seeds to be germinated in about 20% less time under the influence of ionic-energy fields. Furthermore, an electronic pitcher has been designed and built. It can generate nutrient-purified water using embedded solar energy. The talk will discuss the above mentioned electronic systems for agriculture.
