In 2021, we tested the effect of Analemma water on soil fertility and microbiome using cherry tomato plants grown under different watering regimes. Cherry plants were grown in climate-controlled greenhouse conditions and watered with either Analemma water or rainwater (control). After 4 months, we assessed the chemical composition of soil using standard laboratory testing.
Analemma water treatment significantly affected chemical parameters related to the nitrogen cycle, reflecting a strong positive effect on soil fertility. For instance, Analemma significantly increased parameters such as total nitrogen and nitrogen delivery capacity, which indicate increased fertility and productivity. On the other hand, Analemma significantly decreased a parameter called the C/N value, which reflects higher mineralization rates. Analemma is a potent addition to your plant care protocol.
By watering your plants with Analemma water, you can enrich their environment, supplement them with essential minerals without the need for heavy fertilizers, and powerfully enhance their overall strength and vitality.
Analemma boosts bacterial diversity
In the same study on cherry tomato plants, we assessed the bacterial diversity of soil treated with Analemma water compared to control. Terrestrial plants are tightly linked to soil microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi.
The importance of soil microbiome is highlighted by the fact that plants invest somewhere between 11 and 40% of their photosynthetically fixed carbon as well as 10–16% of their total nitrogen into compounds used by the microorganisms surrounding their roots. In turn, bacteria and fungi actively decompose organic matter, releasing nutrients and furthering plant growth.
Using next-generation sequencing, we assessed bacterial diversity of soil in which cherry tomatoes were grown using Analemma water. Compared to control, Analemma water significantly increased bacterial diversity of the soil.
Together with the essential role of nitrogen in increasing soil fertility, bacterial diversity is another indicator of a healthy and well-balanced soil able to support good plant health. Soil rich in bacteria has higher rates of mineralization, providing plants with ready-to-use nutrients crucial for their growth, development, production of fruits as well as defense against pathogens and environmental stress.
Analemma water is beneficial not only for humans, but for plants as well. Ensure that your plants thrive with Analemma!
Treating your plants with Analemma water will create a highly nurturing environment, actively restoring the health and vitality of your leafy friends.
If you’re growing plants for fruit and vegetable harvest, all of the beneficial effects of Analemma coherent water will return to you through healthy, fresh and revitalized produce.
