 Project objective

Water is becoming scarcer, droughts are becoming a big problem, and together with high levels of soil salinization and nematodes infections, are endangering the agriculture sector all around the world. Planet Horizon Technologies (PHT) presents a Swiss-made innovative, chemical-free and eco-friendly solution to face agricultural problems: AQUA4D. The basic principle of AQUA4D technology is the change of water structure with electromagnetic (EM) waves. This technology has proved to be highly effective in the horticulture and fruit sector. Now, PHT aims to expand the use of this technology to the main crops sector (cereals and grains). To do so, we adapted the current modular system to cope with higher flow-rates of water needed for sprinkler irrigation systems – a market that was valued as 1.57 B€ and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.97% during the period 2017-2022.

AQUA4D facilitates a better dissolution and distribution of minerals, promotes water retention in the soil and allows for absorption of minerals by the plants, allowing 25% reduction on water and fertilizer use. At the same time, AQUA4D increases the natural resistance of plants against diseases, avoids nematode attacks in roots and prevents clogging and biofilm in pipes. AQUA4D presents the lowest power consumption (able to be powered with small solar panels) and the lowest running cost from all water treatment technologies in the market, allowing its use in a low margin market such as the main crops production. The result expected will be an improvement of up to 20% in the production yield with a fast payback, between 6 and 24 months. Commercialization of high flow rate AQUA4D is estimated to begin in 2020 and PHT estimates to sell 9,000 units during 2020-2024 period, which will render us a cumulative gross profit of 40.50 M€ by 2024.
