This week, representatives from Aquatrols attended the More Crop per Drop Conference in London, a significant gathering focused on the more efficient use of water in the agricultural industry.
The assembly aimed to address some of the serious issues related to population growth, water scarcity and climate change. It was open to policy managers, decision makers, academics in the field, and members of the media.
Dr. Stan Kostka and Nick Gadd of Aquatrols presented exciting research demonstrating that the use of certain soil surfactants may produce water savings analogous to the projected, but as yet, unachieved goals of genetically modified crops.
About IrrigAid Gold
In several multi-year studies, Aquatrols IrrigAid Gold soil surfactant has proven to maintain corn crop yields equivalent to full irrigation, even when watering rates were reduced by up to 40%.
The research suggests that the use of this soil surfactant may prove to be a simple, economically attractive strategy to increase crop water productivity.
Dr. Kostka reported that the information and technology was well received by conference attendees. Well done, Nick and Stan!
