“Low O2 predisposes plants to infection by soilborne pathogens. For instance, oxygen-deficient soils stress plants and predispose them to infection by water molds such as Pythium and Phytophthora cinnamomi, and O2-deprived roots leak greater amounts of soluble metabolites and ethanol, attracting zoospores.” Nitric oxide function during oxygen deprivation in physiological and stress processes, Isabel Manrique-Gil, Inmaculada Sánchez-Vicente, Isabel Torres-Quezada, and Oscar Lorenzo, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7876777/
At EOD we have helped our customers to get rid of widely expanded pythium with the Nanoboost®. At Finnish Österlund &P aavola greenhouse growing tomatoes pythium caused severe crop losses throughout the greenhouse. Few weeks since the commission of the Nanoboost® nano-oxygen generator the tomatoes already looked healthy and pythium analysis gave negative results.
