A New Technology – Radio Wave Energized Water

Postby George Collins » Fri Aug 30, 2013 1:30 am

A GROUNDBREAKING new Irish technology which could be the greatest breakthrough in agriculture since the plough is set to change the face of modern farming forever.

The technology – radio wave energised water – massively increases the output of vegetables and fruits by up to 30 per cent.

Not only are the plants much bigger but they are largely disease-resistant, meaning huge savings in expensive fertilisers and harmful pesticides.

Extensively tested in Ireland and several other countries, the inexpensive water treatment technology is now being rolled out across the world. The technology makes GM obsolete and also addresses the whole global warming fear that there is too much carbon dioxide in the air, by simply converting excess CO2 into edible plant mass.

Developed by Professor Austin Darragh and Dr JJ Leahy of Limerick University's Department of Chemistry and Environmental Science, the hardy eco-friendly technology uses nothing but the natural elements of sunlight, water, carbon dioxide in the air and the minerals in the soil.

The compact biscuit-tin-sized technology, which is called Vi-Aqua – meaning 'life water' – converts 24 volts of electricity into a radio signal, which charges up the water via an antennae. Once the device is attached to a hose, thousands of gallons of water can be charged up in less than 10 minutes at a cost of pennies.

Speaking about the new technology, Professor Austin Darragh says:

"Vi-Aqua makes water wetter and introduces atmospheric nitrogen into the water in the form of nitrates – so it is free fertiliser. It also produces the miracle of rejuvenating the soil by invigorating soil-based micro-organisms.

"We can also make water savings of at least 30 per cent. When the water is treated it becomes a better solvent, which means it can carry more nutrients to the leaves and stem and percolate better down into the soil to nourish the roots, which in turn produces a better root system. Hence the reason you need less water and why you end up with larger and hardier crops," explains Professor Austin Darragh.

Extensively tested in Warrenstown Agricultural College, the technology is being hailed as a modern day miracle.

I saw this too, George, and thought it was exciting news! Let me know where to send money. :lol: I know several people who would want a unit.

Here is the web site for the company that makes them, but I don't see any pricing.

http://tredispace.com/viaqua/index.php/en/

It does sound too good to be true, but if it works as advertised, WOW. I really want to know more about it and how it works.

I have watched some videos that shows the influence of frequency on various materials, including a stream of water from a hose/spigot. Intuitively the concept makes sense to me.

I can't get the website you just linked to open today, but had seen that they were available for sale through another story someone posted on Facebook. That site didn't offer prices either, just a "give us your info and we'll contact you in a few days" message.

Maybe try again Lolly, it opened right up for me. Could just be a temporary glitch, the site lists 4 units for sale. The smallest one is hand held and can be used by home owners to treat a watering can. They didn't list any prices though. The next larger model is used with a garden hose, so it too can be used by home owners for watering a garden, or it could produce enough water for live stock. I would really like to know what the units cost, if they are not too expensive I think they could be worth a try.

Well, I tried the link again. It hadn't worked the several times I tried earlier in the day, but that was during time of high internet usage, so the thought was late this evening everything should be just fine. :) Except I got a message from my anti-virus software telling me that the site might have a Trojan Horse virus and did I really, really want to go there? :( So I will try to find the story I saw on Facebook several days ago, that had a link showing the several varieties available, but no prices listed. If I find it AND remember, I'll bring it here too.

I am sorry if there is a virus there. My spyware program did not pick anything up. Maybe Matt can check, he seems to be more knowledgeable than I .

Well, the page came right up for me and looks fine. It's certainly interesting technology.

Vi-Aqua makes water wetter and introduces atmospheric nitrogen into the water in the form of nitrates – so it is free fertiliser. It also produces the miracle of rejuvenating the soil by invigorating soil-based micro-organisms.


Thanks to George for posting this. They certainly are making some pretty big claims. I am going to say that I am really quite skeptical of this, and would like to know a lot more about it, including reading about their methodology.

I'd like to talk about the claims in the sentence I quoted:
"It makes water wetter"

- What exactly does this mean? How can water be wetter? It's changing the components of water in some way?
"introduces atmospheric nitrogen into the water in the form of nitrates"

- well, it's my understanding that bacteria present on the roots of legumes can fix atmospheric nitrogen, so certainly SOME processes can do this. Lightning converts some nitrogen in the air when it strikes. The other way I know of nitrogen getting into water is from agricultural runoff. I am curious to know how exactly the radio waves are fixing nitrogen - if it's in a similar way as a lightning strike, the power input to nitrogen output would seem to be less efficient than just growing legumes.

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/weather/ ... cience.htm
Q: Is there something in lightning that helps plants and flowers grow?
A: Plants need nitrogen to grow and the air is about 78% nitrogen, but it's a form that plants can't use.
Lightning changes nitrogen in the air into a form plants can use. This is called "fixation" of nitrogen. Lightning accounts for only about 5% of the natural fixation of nitrogen, with bacteria doing most of the work.


Wikipedia says a lightning strike is about 1TW of energy. is this radio wave method more efficient than a lightning strike at converting nitrogen?

"so it is free fertiliser"


Well now, "free" is an awfully loaded word. The source of radio waves must require some kind of power, and that has an inherent cost..

" It also produces the miracle of rejuvenating the soil by invigorating soil-based micro-organisms."


Hmm... when humans start referring to their own handiwork as miracles I get a little bit suspicious. What kind of invigoration are we talking about here?

Again, I think this is a really interesting idea, I would like to hear more about it... I'm just not ready to accept it without a little more evidence.

Dave, I have some of the same reservations. If it sounds too good to be true it most likely is. ;) And its not nice to fool Mother Nature comes to mind as you talk about super plants, or super livestock. I still want to know more about it, how it works, what is does, and how much it costs. I is not claiming to replace all need for fertilizer, it is simply saying that it makes the water work as a fertilizer. The 30% larger plants seems pretty amazing to me.
