A New Source of Green Nitrogen Fertiliser
DEPENDENCE ON NITROGEN
Nitrogen fertilisers synthesised artificially have
allowed the world's population to grow by
increasing food production, however, they are
also responsible for causing climate change.
Nitrogen applied to the soil is processed by
bacteria resulting in nitrous oxide released into
the atmosphere. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is 265 times
more harming to the environment than CO2
causing global warming.
R-Leaf's IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Nitrogen fertiliser made from captured atmospheric nitrous oxides using R-Leaf saves 5.4 tns of CO2 equivalent per hectare per year on average. The Climate Impact Forecast tool supported by the European Innovation Council validated the details behind the figures. The impact per hectare is equivalent to 245 mature trees.
HOW TO USE R-Leaf
The recommended dose of R-Leaf is 1lt/ha in 150-200lt of water per hectare. Application timing on Cereals is at T1 (GS 31-33) and T2 (GS 38-40) with an optional spray at GS 45-47.
Apply to Amenity after each cut or every 2-4 weeks. Apply to Vegetables at 4-5 true leaves and every 4-6 weeks. Apply to Fruit Trees at full leaf growth. Apply to Ornamentals at 3-5 weeks frequency. For any Other crop types apply at 1lt per hectare in a minimum of 200lt water at 4 weeks frequency.
Complex science turned into practical simplicity. Specially processed photocatalysts able to work under day light convert nitrous oxides from the air to nitrate. A suspension concentrate allows spraying the material onto any plant foliage resulting in a constant supply of nitrogen to the plants. This allows reducing the dendence on synthetic nitrogen fertilisers.
