Using Bio-Agtive at Planting

Bio-Agtive Emissions Technology for Seeding
Innovation is about consistently moving forward. From building on the past decade of prototypes is the intergration of the Bio-Agtive NanoVAPE System with our Bioagtive Advanced Systems for Seeding. This technology is built upon the past decade of diligent research and development conducted on farms across the globe. N/C Quest's continued collaboration with farms along with our own experience in agriculture using this method, has led to further discovery. Capture Nano-Carbons from the combustion engine for in enhanced germination, vigor and disease protection. The NanoVAPE system on the seeding equipment allows you to capturing and store the emissions during seeding for later in-crop application.
Bio-Agtive Advanced System
The BA-6380 & BA-6480 system have been perfected over the last decade by N/C Quest. We custom purpose build and test our air to air condenser system. With its low profile design and negative cooling pressure, it can be fitted to an array of multiple mounting spots on your equipment. Tig welded, constructed of an aluminum shell and stainless steel cores allows the system to be lightweight and durable. The condensers modular design allows for the systems to be joined together increasing its cooling capabilities or joined into SBA38 Fusion tank for the NanoVAPE method.
Importance of Nano-Carbons
There are starting to be more studies released on Nano-Carbons created in the combustion engine and the effect they have on plants. Here are just a few:
Carbon nanotubes are an allotrope of carbon. They are a unique form of carbon, cylindrical in shape, that possess many different properties that allow them to be used in various applications in the world of material science and agriculture. Latest studies on the use of CNTs have been environmental and its use in agriculture.
Nano-carbon tubes are naturally occurring in diesel engines through the process of combustion. In a study by the University of Arkansas, they found that carbon nanotubes introduced to tomato seeds helped support water uptake, which enabled faster germination rates. In the test studies, nanotube-exposed seeds sprouted up to two times faster than control seeds, and the seedlings weighed more than twice as much as the untreated plants
In a study using date palm cultures, treated embryos had a positive effect on shoot length and leaf numbers during the elongation stage. The number of roots, their length, the number of hairy roots and plantlet length were all increased. It was concluded the introduction of CNTs to the embryos organized nutrient absorption to the plant. This means increased absorption of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and calcium while decreasing sodium percentage
