Natural liquid nitrogen fertilizer

Lightning in a box! This ancient physical process of nitrogen fixation is, according to the principles of biomimicry, translated one-on-one into a technological innovation: high-tech systems that create liquid nitrogen fertilizer. Only water, air and energy are required for the production. Because of this, a natural liquid nitrogen fertilizer can be produced. The on farm production has the advantage that there are no CO2 emissions, pollution and risks for people and environment as a result of packaging, storage, transport and distribution of the fertilizer. In case sustainable energy is available locally, even the production of VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen is carbon neutral. The grower only needs to add a VitalFluid system in the existing feeding/drip irrigation systems.

Our systems use ambient air and fixate the nitrogen and oxygen into a valuable nutrient dissolved in water, but only in such a concentration that it can be applied directly to your crops and plants.

The technology is scalable to the desired level and nitrogen (as a raw material) is unlimited and freely available in ambient air. Because growers can produce VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen in-situ only on the basis of water, air and electricity, they become less dependent on external inputs. When the electricity to power the Plasma system is generated locally from a clean source like solar, wind or water power, the resulting nitrogen is carbon neutral.

(Organic) Nitrogen fertilization

The high-tech systems make natural nitrate supply, via drip irrigation systems, possible for hydroponic growers, vertical farming, fertigation and it can also be applied directly to the soil. In addition to nitrogen fixation, lightning also results in an enrichment with oxygen molecules. Compared to other nitrogen sources, VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen is therefore expected to be better absorbed by plants and crops. The local production makes precision feeding possible: only the amount of nitrate that is really needed is produced and dosed. And as only nitrate is transported through the water no harmful residues will be present. This confirms once more the natural character of VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen. 

When it can be used as an organic liquid nitrogen fertilizer there are even more benefits of using the Natural Nitrogen of VitalFluid. Because the Organic nitrate is dissolved in water the drippers will not be blocked by residues which result in time saving and ameliorated growth of your crops like tomato, cucumber, peppers and many more.

The organic liquid fertilizer has a pH of 2, which is very helpful in organic farming to steer the pH of the feeding water. We are aware that regulations for organic growing can be different in all countries. Please contact us for the possibilities of using VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen as organic liquid fertilizer in your specific situation.

Foliar fertilization

It is known for a long time that rain during a thunderstorm improves the fitness and health of your crops and that it leaves a valuable nutrient in the form of liquid nitrate as residue. You can profit from the benefits a  thunderstorm offers by spraying plasma treated water directly on your crops. It will improve the resilience and growth of your crops like vegetables, for instance, tomato, cucumber, peppers etc.

We use the efficiency of nature!

VitalFluid’s technology brings circular food production a big leap closer and that is needed. The global demand for food and other agricultural products is increasing, the demand for sustainably produced food is increasing and governmental initiatives and ambitions support this. With VitalFluid Natural Nitrogen we can take this step: an ancient natural physical process for the future of our horticulture.

Seed treatment 

The agriculture sector needs to grow their crops with top-quality seeds. No matter what vegetable or plant you are growing it all starts with planting a clean and healthy seed. To achieve a good germination/sprouting it is necessary to have the right seed treatment.

With the right seed treatment the seeds are healthy which results in a good germination.

With plasma water we offer seed companies a tool to produce clean, healthy seeds without negative effects for the environment. You can clean and disinfect your seeds by soaking or spraying the seeds with plasma activated water. This will be produced on site with fresh air and electricity, without the use of any toxins, furthermore it leaves no residue.

With the plasma water of VitalFluid there is no need for chemical seed treatment. Please contact us to discuss the possibilities of the VitalFluid plasma water in seed treatment.

Benefits of Vitalfluid plasma water:
  • Sustainable
  • Clean and healthy seeds
  • No need of external supply (in house solution)
  • Composition can be finetuned for desired composition
  • Extremely stable and reproducible

Plant Health

The need to use environmental friendly crop protection in agriculture is very high. There are many crop protection products which are harmful for the environment. To grow healthy crops farmers need to protect them against bacteria, moulds and diseases.

VitalFluid plasma water enables sustainable food production with a natural alternative which  prevents the use of chemical plant protection products, through the biomimicry of lightning during thunderstorms. With its temporary disinfecting properties and the absence of residues, it fits perfectly with the preservation of the crop protection sector.

Spraying the crops with plasma activated water improves plant health and plant fitness and supports the resilience of crops and plants. Besides the temporary hygienic properties plasma activated water is still a liquid nitrogen fertilizer which can be used as a foliar fertilizer. Therefor VitalFluid’s plasma water is a perfect foliar feeding and crop protection in one.

Benefits of Vitalfluid plasma water for crop protection:
  • Sustainable
  • Hygienic
  • On site production
  • Not harmful for the environment
