Eco-Irrigation Shows Results

“Eco-Irrigation” is a new project promoted jointly by Chemilizer Products, Inc. and Applied and Experimental Microbiology. The goal of this project is to conserve water through reduced demand and runoff, and to reduce pesticide and fertilizer use.

According to a recent press release, the companies hope to accomplish Eco-Irrigation by developing biological products with extended shelf lives along with high-efficiency liquid fertilizers and accurate injection equipment. Implementing these products has already shown results: up to 60 percent decrease in water demand, up to 50 percent decrease in fertilizer use and more than 50 percent decrease in pesticide use, in many cases. A significant reduction in fertilizer and pesticide runoff as well as reduced greenhouse gas emissions was also noted.
