AN EFFECTIVE AND ECOLOGICAL GLOBAL SOLUTION TO COMBAT ALGAE
Algae may be present on plants, in the air, in water or in the soil.
As a result, their microscopic spores are continually being introduced into water supplies and supply installations by water currents, the wind, dust storms and rain run-off, etc.
Algae grow rapidly in standing water when exposed to sunlight and temperatures above 4 °C.
The phosphates and nitrates often found in water stimulate their growth.
Increased cost of maintenance operations: ditch, reservoir and installation cleaning and the subsequent settlement-related damage.
They result in water losses upon invading ditches and drains, thus causing them to overflow or consuming water directly.
Mat formation on filters and grates.
Blockage of water uptake and distribution pipes.
Blockage of irrigation systems (siphons, sprinklers…).
Reduced crop quality. They may introduce substances whose unpleasant taste and smell can be transmitted to the crop.
THE OX METHODOLOGY AND ITS ADVANTAGES
OX-CTA has developed a series of methodologies
based on physical methods and/or chemical treatments that can be adapted to meet the needs of each installation with customised action plans
for either eradication or prevention.
1. Use of products that are compatible
with subsequent water use (non-phytotoxic and absence of toxic by-products).
under extreme water conditions (high pH, high and low temperatures).
3. Treatment involving the most appropriate methodology according to the environmental and structural demands
of each installation.
4. Does not damage
materials or installations.
5. All treatments undertaken by specialised OX technicians.
6. Time and cost
savings for cleaning operations.
As the best alternative to any other method available, the application of OX products by means of OX-CTA TECHNOLOGY®,
achieves results based on our
GLOBAL 3E SOLUTION
