GreenTech 2024: Discover the Advantages of ActivatedAir Seed Priming

The Zayndu stand at GreenTech was kept busy hosting discussions with growers about how ActivatedAir can reduce growing costs and environmental impact, thereby increasing profitability.

Representatives of Zayndu’s sales, engineering and plant science teams were available on the stand, demonstrating a Z10 ActivatedAir seed primer for visitors. Seeds treated with ActivatedAir are free of pathogens and have rapid and more even emergence. Typically, this leads to yield increases of around 20% and reduced time for crop turnaround.

The team noted that grower sentiment seemed buoyant but that many were searching for new technology to improve their production systems further.

“The common theme from growers has been reducing the cost of growing a crop,” says Ralph Weir, Zayndu CEO. “If you can get more production out of a facility, then you have reduced the cost of production.

“Another theme has been growers looking to reduce the environmental impact of what they do, which is linked to energy efficiency. ActivatedAir has appealed to these growers because it is a pesticide-free solution, and quicker crop cycles mean less energy used per crop.”

Robert Woods, business development director for Zayndu, found that facility hygiene and production flexibility were two things that always interested large-scale producers visiting the stand.

“They were reporting issues with pathogen control, either because it isn’t working, is costly or inefficient for them,” says Robert.

“They were also interested in the flexibility rapid even emergence gives their system: do you get your crop off sooner and get the same volume, or do you leave it as long as you would without  ActivatedAir priming and get more yield?

“It is great to see growers realise the options ActivatedAir could give them that they haven’t considered before.”

Agritecture‘s Henry stopped by the Zayndu booth to hear more about our ‘innovative’ seed priming technology that gives growers ‘more bang for their buck’. In learning more about how cold plasma can improve germination and yield rates, Henry filmed a quick video to highlight the benefits that ActivatedAir can have within the CEA industry:
