SUPER SIZE YOUR PLANTS!!!

WHAT IS IT?

AGROVOLT - The easiest and most effective way to grow plants with little to no fertilizer or pesticides. Agrovolt is a patent pending product that uses a precise amount of solar electricity (Less than your watch battery) to increase the natural nutrient absorption through the root system. It’s like force feeding a plant. Just like people, the more you eat the bigger you get.  It’s an affordable green technology that works with any plant type. It’s stylish, fun and interactive with amazing results!!! Just insert the Agrovolt into the soil and it does the rest. Best of all, Agrovolt allows everyone to do their part in reducing pollution and destruction of our rivers, streams and environment.

Studies have shown an increase in the number of seeds that germinate in as little as half the time. Leaves are thicker and greener. Roots systems are larger with an increase in fine root hairs. Fruits, vegetables and herbs grow larger, faster and more robust in flavor. This technology has been University tested (Results listed below) with amazing results showing greater than 60% increase in plant growth without the need to add fertilizer.

WHAT WILL AGROVOLT DO FOR MY PLANTS?

  • Up to 60% to 150% increase in fresh/dry weight
  • Supercharged growth in half the time
  • Works on all types of herbs, fruits, vegetables, shrubs and lawn
  • Great for indoor/outdoor use
  • Works in low light areas where sunlight is a challenge
  • Increased root mass
  • Higher percentage of female to male seed germination
  • Reduce or eliminate pest/insect infestation
  • Affordable, organic and green technology
 

HOW DID THIS START?

For me, Agrovolt started as a high school science fair project 25 years ago. I took 1st place at State and won a public accommodation from the U.S. Army for my work.  In the mid 1990’s I created the first generation Agrovolt and sold nearly 500 devices. After building these devices day and night in a spare bedroom and investing roughly $50,000, I finally ran out of time and money. It was absolutely heart breaking.

With the rise of the internet and the emphasis now placed on saving the environment, the time has come to rekindle this technology. Not only rekindle, but through technology, offer a way to experience an interactive and more personal relationship with your plants and garden like never before. The new generation of Agrovolt has a built in moisture meter with future designs to include Bluetooth technology capable of presenting real time data to a smart phone or computer on the health and efficiency of the plants being grown. We also have a product ready for market called “Agro-Boost” that enhances the ionic absorption for even greater results.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

IT'S AS EASY AS 1...2...3. Just place the Agrovolt in the soil and the device will do the rest. It will tell you when to water and when your plants are being energized. Agrovolt is a safe and effective way to stimulate plant growth via increased ionic absorption of nutrients.  As the plant medium becomes ionized, a precise amount of current (less than a watch battery) reverses the polarity of the plant's cell membrane allowing for prolonged absorption of nutrients. Basically "force feeding" nutrients into the plant like an IV infusion. This "force feeding" causes the plant to grow quicker, larger and healthier with no adverse effects. We are ready for production and would love to have you share in our project.

Theory (It's a mouth full)

Research demonstrates that during electrical stimulation, voltage differences across the plant cell membrane called electrogenic pumps, provide the driving force for ion transport across cellular membranes. When membrane polarities reverse, via electrical stimulation, greater amounts of nutrients feed into the cell (NO3–, H2PO4–, SO4– –, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+,Fe3+).  Transporter proteins pump protons out of the cell creating a pH and electrical potential which allows the plant to maintain a higher solute concentration inside the cell.

 Plant roots have the ability to absorb nutrients against high concentration gradients which is a unique characteristic of the cell membrane that surrounds the cytoplasm of the plant cell. The plant uses about 20% to 50% of its energy supply to maintain a higher solute concentration which is a massive investment of energy by the plant cells.

It is believed that the Agrovoltaic method provides an ancillary energy resource to the plant. This in turn reduces the amount of energy the plant needs to maintain a high concentration gradient, allowing the plant to expend more energy transporting nutrients and propagating new and increased growth.

DOES IT REALLY WORK?

The technology actually dates back to the mid 1800’s. Farmers would hang high tension wires over there crop fields and float a weather balloon 100 feet in the air. The natural static charge in the atmosphere traveled down the wire and produced an electrical charge that would ionize the air around the plants.

In 1964, the USDA performed tests on shrubs with this technology and found foliage increases greater than 300% on the branches in less than one year! It was also found that under the influence of an electrical current, female to male germination rates showed increases up to 25%. This translated to increased yields of fruits and vegetables.

Agrovolt and the University of Florida’s Research Findings

In 1995, the University of Florida’s Agricultural Department in Gainesville, Florida invited me to par-take in an experimental study on the efficacy of Agrovolt. The following research findings were recorded and documented.  A study was conducted with a control and non-controlled sample.  All samples received the same treatment.  The non-controlled sample received the Agrovoltaic System.

Key:

Fsm = Fresh shoot mass                L = Lettuce
Dsm = Dry Shoot Mass                  T = Tomato
Frm = Fresh Root Mass                  P = Pepper
Drm = Dry Root Mass                    C = Celery
Lfa = Leaf Area 

Results of the Non-Controlled Group:

T-Fsm =  29.62% Increase         P-Fsm = 12.08% Increase
T-Dsm = 17.55% Increase         P-Dsm= 14.08% Increase
T-Frm =  25.60% Increase         P-Frm = 33.43% Increase
T-Drm = 15.54% Increase          P-Drm= 11.54% Increase
T-Lfa =   25.06% Increase          P-Lfa  = 18.85% Increase

L-Fsm =  36.53% Increase         C-Fsm =  55.65% Increase
L-Dsm = 19.03% Increase         C-Dsm =  50.04% Increase
L-Frm =  11.89% Increase          C-Frm =  53.28% Increase
L-Drm = 14.87% Increase          C-Drm =  55.01% Increase
L-Lfa =  36.99% Increase           C-Lfa   =  55.62% Increase

HOW WILL YOU GET IT TO MARKET IF I BACK YOUR PROJECT?

I have partnered with DA International Group out of Seattle, WA.  DA International Group is a global manufacture with over 22 years of experience in custom manufacturing and product development.
