The project

According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), transboundary plant pests and diseases – growing in the last years because of globalization, trade and climate change, as well as reduced resilience in production systems due to decades of agricultural intensification - affect food crops, threatening food security. Agriculture is to be safe, healthy and sustainable, so it is essential to have healthy crops; they play a role in producing sufficient quantities of healthy foods and contribute to the quality of life.

Driven by needs of farmers, MET and Gamberini conceived OXIR, an innovative technology for spraying aqueous ozone (O3) for disease control and sanitation of greenhouse crops, taking advantage of the powerful oxidation-based (hence non-selective) anti-pathogen action of ozone.
