這有可能是歷史上最大農業突破技術新聞,歡迎轉載。

 原文翻譯,(本人翻譯僵硬了,請無視):

一個開創性愛爾蘭的新技術,可能會是農業自犁田以來最偉大的突破,將永遠地改變農業面貌。

技術 - 無線電波激化水 - 大規模增加蔬菜和水果的產量高達30%。

不僅是植物大得多,而且他們在很大程度上是抗病性強,這意味著巨大的節省了昂貴的化肥和有害農藥。

在愛爾蘭和其他一些國家廣泛測試,低廉的水處理技術,現在正推出於世界各地。這項技術使基改作物過時,簡單通過將多餘的二氧化碳轉化為大量食用植物,還解決了害怕太多二氧化碳在空氣中形成的全球變暖問題。

利默里克大學化學與環境科學系奧斯汀達拉夫和JJ·萊希博士開發的環保技術,這種強悍又經濟友善(省錢)的方法,只不過用了自然元素陽光,水,空氣中的二氧化碳和土壤中的礦物質。

這小巧緊湊如錫餅大小的技術,就是所謂的VI-AQUA - 意思是“生命之水” - 用24伏的電力轉換成無線電信號,通過一個天線充能量於水。一旦設備被連接到一個水管,數千加侖的水可以在不到10分鐘內以很低的成本充能完成。

說到這新技術,達拉夫奧斯汀教授說:

“生命之水使水更濕潤,以硝酸鹽的形式導入大氣中的氮到水中 - 所以它是免費的肥料。他並且活化了以土為基的微生物使土產生奇蹟般的興活。 "

“我們還可以節省至少30%的水。當水把它變成一個更好的溶劑,這意味著它可以攜帶更多的營養到葉與莖,並滲透進入土壤去滋養根,從而產生一個更好的根系統。這就是你需要更少的水,而為何卻能產生更大和更加強壯的作物的原因“達拉夫奧斯汀教授如此解釋。

在Warrenstown農學院經過廣泛的測試,該技術被人們譽為一個現代奇蹟。

哈羅德·勞勒是愛爾蘭最重要的農業專家。作為一名國家植物園主任,與前Warrenstown農學院農業科學專家,對「生命之水」促進經濟增長的技術,他或許比世界上任何人都做過更多的研究:

 


"在花壇植物上我們可以看到結果上的差異,它們更堅強與強悍,你可以把這些植物丟到地上卻不會像其他普通植物那樣脆弱地粉碎

 哈羅德勞勒說 :"我們也注意到有處理過的植物比其他沒處理過的植物需要的肥料更少。它們的根吸取養分的情況更好,而其他正常植物的養分則有礦物質滲漏出去的情況發生"

 令人印象深刻,哈羅德勞勒的研究團隊在其他廣泛的蔬菜植物上進行了了更進一步廣泛的實驗:

 

“例如,冰山萵苣與胡蘿蔔發芽更快,遠遠優於一般的,這些作物平均多出46%的重量。”哈羅德·勞勒解釋著。

 在最近義大利的蕃茄田的成功實驗上,三個該國最大的農業合作社對這樣的結果是如此的令人印象深刻,他們現在決定推薦該技術到全國的農業區。

 

在其他地區,印度政府已經對自己的實驗做出結論,確認可以用更少的水,卻可以讓茶葉冒出多達三分之一的產量。

 在確認這項突破性技術上,倫敦的基尤皇家植物園最近史無前例地授權給奧斯丁與他的團隊使用數百年來的官方徽章,這是有史以來第一次基尤皇家植物園提供這項榮譽。

 基尤皇家植物園的植物學家不只是對研究留下深刻印象,他們採用該技術去復活一個非常罕見的蘭花,這蘭花自1942年以來處於休眠狀態,幾乎是死在溫室罩中。令人驚訝的是,現在蘭花再次蓬勃盛開。

 有趣的是,雞跟羊食用能量水卻變得巨大....但這是另外的話題了。

總部設在利默里克國家科技園區,利默里克大學所屬校外的ZPM公司歐洲公司,現在已經正在製造這種Vi-Aqua生命之水的技術。

Wave goodbye to global warming, GM and pesticides

Radio wave-treated water could change agriculture as we know it. Its Irish pioneers meet Tom Prendeville

 

A GROUNDBREAKING new Irish technology which could be the greatest breakthrough in agriculture since the plough is set to change the face of modern farming forever.

 

The technology – radio wave energised water – massively increases the output of vegetables and fruits by up to 30 per cent.

Not only are the plants much bigger but they are largely disease-resistant, meaning huge savings in expensive fertilisers and harmful pesticides.

Extensively tested in Ireland and several other countries, the inexpensive water treatment technology is now being rolled out across the world. The technology makes GM obsolete and also addresses the whole global worming fear that there is too much carbon dioxide in the air, by simply converting excess CO2 into edible plant mass.

 

Developed by Professor Austin Darragh and Dr JJ Leahy of Limerick University's Department of Chemistry and Environmental Science, the hardy eco-friendly technology uses nothing but the natural elements of sunlight, water, carbon dioxide in the air and the minerals in the soil.

The compact biscuit-tin-sized technology, which is called Vi-Aqua – meaning 'life water' – converts 24 volts of electricity into a radio signal, which charges up the water via an antennae. Once the device is attached to a hose, thousands of gallons of water can be charged up in less than 10 minutes at a cost of pennies.

Speaking about the new technology, Professor Austin Darragh says:

"Vi-Aqua makes water wetter and introduces atmospheric nitrogen into the water in the form of nitrates – so it is free fertiliser. It also produces the miracle of rejuvenating the soil by invigorating soil-based micro-organisms.

"We can also make water savings of at least 30 per cent. When the water is treated it becomes a better solvent, which means it can carry more nutrients to the leaves and stem and percolate better down into the soil to nourish the roots, which in turn produces a better root system. Hence the reason you need less water and why you end up with larger and hardier crops," explains Professor Austin Darragh.

Extensively tested in Warrenstown Agricultural College, the technology is being hailed as a modern day miracle.

Harold Lawler is Ireland's foremost Agricultural Specialist. As Director of the National Botanical Gardens and former Master of Agricultural Science at Warrenstown Agricultural College, he has carried out more research on Vi-Aqua growth-enhancing technology than perhaps anyone else in the world:

 

"In the bedding plants we really saw a difference in the results; they were much hardier and tougher. You could drop a tray of these plants on the ground and they would not shatter, like ordinary plants.

"We also noticed that the treated plants needed far less fertiliser than the untreated ones. The roots took the nutrients in better whereas with other normal plants leaching of minerals occurs," explains Harold Lawler.

Impressed, Harold Lawler's research team carried out further extensive tests on a wide variety of vegetable plants:

"The iceberg lettuces were far superior with faster germination, and with carrots for example, the crops were on average 46 per cent heavier," explains Harold Lawler.

During recent successful tomato crop field trials in Italy, three of the country's largest Agricultural Co-op's were so impressed with the results that they have now decided to recommend the technology to the country's farming community.

Elsewhere, the Indian government have now concluded their own tests, which confirm that they are able to boost tea (plant) production by over a third while using far less water.

In recognition of the groundbreaking technology, the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, London, recently took the hitherto unheard-of step of granting Professor Austin Darragh and his team the right to use their official centuries-old coat of arms on the new technology – the first time ever that Kew Gardens has afforded anyone such an honour.

The Kew Gardens botanists were not just impressed with the research; they used the technology to restore to life a very rare orchid which had been lying dormant and practically dead in a greenhouse bell jar since 1942. Amazingly, the orchid is now flourishing once again.

Intriguingly, chickens and sheep fed the energised water turned into giants. . . but that's another story!

Limerick University off- campus company ZPM Europe Ltd, who are based in the National Technology Park, Limerick, is now manufacturing the Vi-Aqua technology.
