Water Right Technologies Helps Plants Survive Challenging Growing Conditions
ESCALON, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “no single practice works alone to enhance soil function, and no single set of practices works everywhere. Aim to improve soil organic matter and soil function, rather than to implement a particular set of practices.” John Witzke, founder of Water Right Technologies Inc. (www.wrtag.com), understands that the key to improving a farmer’s soil lies in a multi-faceted program that scientifically assesses each farm, especially during times of challenging growing conditions. It is important to consider all factors of the farmlands–water, soil composition, minerals, climate, and location. However, it is vital to understand the key role that the composition of farmers’ irrigation water plays in crop growth and yield in order to combat unexpected environmental challenges.
“A healthy plant will be more resistant to stresses such as drought, heat, wind, or cold,” John says. “To be healthy, a plant needs the right nutrients.” The soil tests typically used by farmers to determine the kind of fertilizers and soil additives that their land needs oftentimes don’t take into account the fact that each farmer’s irrigation water is unique. Soil testers typically mix the farmer’s soil with a weak acid solution that sits for 24 hours, and then they test that solution to see what nutrients the soil needs.
“We want to mimic the actual soil mixture from farmers’ fields in order to target the problem and provide a lasting solution,” says John. “Water Right Technologies takes that testing process a step further by mixing the farmer’s soil with his own irrigation water,”says John. “We want to mimic the actual soil mixture from farmers’ fields in order to target the problem and provide a lasting solution.”
After studying a farm’s specific needs through WRT’s unique testing and analysis process, John makes product recommendations and educates farmers on sustainable farming methods (including composting) that get plants the necessary nutrients in a cost-effective way.
John founded Water Right Technologies with the commitment to restoring life to the soil and nutrition to foods by providing growers customized strategies and sound, sustainable solutions that enhance their own farms and croplands.
