The growth process of plants is based on the principle of photosynthesis
The growth process of plants is based on the principle of photosynthesis. CO2 and water are absorbed by the plant and, under the influence of light, they are converted into sugars, starch and cellulose. If one of this three factors is missing, this has a negative impact on the production and/or quality of the plants.
CO2 enrichment is a flexible and safe process, which can be applied at every moment during the day and in the desired quantity.
Pure CO2 contains no toxic substances, such as Ethylene, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides, Acetylene or Propylene. That being said, the chance of infection in the crop is null. This makes the use of pure liquid CO2 also desirable in the winter, especially when the air vents are closed.
