Grower Saves Thousands with Innovative Water Treatment System
ROI: $96,000 in about eight months
Dallas, TX, September 21, 2018- Authored by Heather Leighow
Inconsistent salinity levels hurt crop yield because what can be tolerated by one crop – such as a collection of mature plants – might be deadly for seedlings.
For example, a tomato and pepper grower in Puebla, Mexico faced this problem and had to buy seedlings from a third party that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
It was time for the grower to find a new, disruptive water treatment solution.
Within just eight months of implementing a revolutionary, tunable water treatment technology, the grower was able to produce its seedlings in-house, saving $96,000 and prompting an 85 percent water recovery rate.
