Ozone Technology of Presowing Seed Treatment


Nowadays the eco-friendly agro-technologies have a wide spread. One of promising methods is an ozone technology for presowing seed treatment. This method is a result of investigation on impact of ozone (environmentally friendly oxidant) on the process of activation and growing of seed, as well as the development of ozone equipment that is well adapted for operation under agricultural conditions.

New ozone generators with barrierless electrode system and high-voltage pulsed power supply have a high reliability due to elimination of the dielectric barrier from discharge gap. The advantage of the barrierless ozone generator is a stable operation at the ambient air as a feed gas. New barrierless ozone generators are suitable for operation under agricultural conditions in the best way . New barrierless ozone generators have a modular construction that provide a serviceability and allows to vary the ozone output in wide range 25 – 100 g O3 per hour.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The main innovation of the developed technology is an application of ozone for presowing seed treatment. It allows in the environmentally friendly way to carry out the activation of seeds and as consequence the increase in the crop capacity up 10-15%.

Thus the ozone technology has the following advantages in comparison with commonly used methods:

  • increase of crop capacity on 10-15%;
  • improved quality of grain;
  • 2-4 times reduction of dosage of chemicals;
  • decrease of expenses on operating supply for presowing treatment;
  • environmentally friendly technology excludes the harmful impact on environment;
  • the ozone is produced at the place of operation;
  • the technology can be used for maintenance of seed quality during its keeping in silo;
  • for improvement of seed quality by ozone conditioning.

Areas of Application

The technology can be applied in agriculture for crop growing, for keeping, drying and processing of agricultural products.

Stage of Development

The method of ozone presowing seed treatment is now at the stage of commercial introduction. Operation manual for application of method was approved by the Ministry of Agriculture of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Academy of Agriculture. The technology was patented at Ukraine. Technologies of drying and keeping of seed and other agricultural crop are now at the stage of testing under industrial conditions.
