Title : Evaluation of A Silver-ion Based Purification Unit for Agriculture, Horticulture Livestock, Sanitization and Drinking Water System


Globally, Recently, there is a growing concern about the number of pests exhibiting resistance to existing chemical pesticides in the agriculture and horticulture sector. Silver (Ag+) ion water is used both as an emergency drinking water disinfectant and impregnated in some water filters to prevent microbial regrowth. It is non-toxic plant, non-polar in nature and is safe and harmless to human beings. eco-friendly agriculture, prevention of different diseases, and important in the field of animal husbandry, and fisheries. Several previous studies have reported the important role of silver ions in destroying the enzymes of bacteria important to transport the nutrient into the cells, destabilizing the bacterial cell wall and modify energy metabolism within the cytoplasm, modifying the nucleic acid/DNA synthesis of bacteria thereby disrupting bacterial division and reproduction. Silver ions water are being increasingly used in the agricultural sector due to their insecticidal and antimicrobial properties. The present study consisted of initial assessment of silver ions system device with unique features that can be useful in the agriculture, husbandry, and water sanitization system. Silver ions water produce by our innovative device is highly eco-friendly for the water protection, which requires no chemicals treatments. The device is characterized by high accuracy of dose rate control system and precise ions level that prevent the chances of recontamination. The efficacy of the technology is independent of water temperature and conditions, thus effective for entire water system. The silver ions supplied in the water system are safe for human consumptions. Other additional advantages include, highly convenient in handling due to easy chargeable system (solar energy and battery to battery chargeable systems). Due to high production capacity of the device, it is convenient to produce large quantity of silver ions required in the field of agriculture, livestock, and sanitizations and public drinking water supplies. The device consisted of SIM that enable the internet connectivity that helps for easy communication, monitoring and education to people about the data and results obtained from the silver ions water treatments for long term basis. In the present study, a number agriculture-based experiments have been analyzed, examined the efficiency of device and silver ion quality, its application preventing diseases, growth parameters of crops, livestock and sanitization have been evaluated. Our observation show that the silver ions devices can act as effective disinfectant mechanism and maintain high performance for long time.
