Water Treatment For Agriculture

Watson Well Logo

Watson Well harnesses the power of ozone technology with other treatment methodologies when designing and building our agricultural water treatment systems for commercial farming.

Ozone is a superior oxidant and unmatched organic disinfectant providing multiple benefits all in one technology. Combined with our filtering methods, we can reduce minerals, heavy metals, while providing chemical free disinfection. Our systems significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of waste water discharge used – compared to other treatment technologies.

Water filtration, also known as water conditioning is critical to ensuring plant health.  Unfiltered water can contain excessive levels of minerals, heavy metals or other organics that can contribute to poor crop performance or even excessive crop losses.  Untreated water can also transmit pathogens, fungi, or mold spores that can negatively impact the plants health, yield and overall quality of the crop. Watson Well designs and installs agricultural water treatment systems that are specific to the unique issues of each farm’s water source.  Vineyards, mixed greens, cannabis, cut flowers are just a few of the AG customers we work with.

We solve hard water issues using water softeners. Depending on flow rate demands, our water softener solutions may include single filter units to multiple Duplex or Triplex units all including the latest in metered valve technology which provides significant efficiencies and cost savings by automatically scheduling regeneration periods based on actual water volumes used through the filters.

Other issues can be regional and may require a combination of technologies to purify the water. During the drought of the west, we see the concentration of sodium, selenium, boron, and sulfides increasing beyond dangerous levels in well water severely impacting the health of the plants. 

Indoor grows can face unique challenges when required to use condensate water which can introduce pathogens or possibly heavy metals to the plants. The use of untreated canal water can introduce pathogens to the crops. Dissolved oxygen levels can become dangerously low for plants that are watered with pond water. Pond water can be the source of pythium or fusarium contamination introduced to the plants through the watering of untreated water. Biofilm contamination is another serious issue often overlooked by farms. Biofilm can clog delivery systems and impact the running efficiencies of water pumps. Biofilm is a known host for pathogens. It also consumes valuable dissolved oxygen in the water which impacts the soils and plants.

Listed are some of the different technologies we utilize and integrate into our designs for agricultural water treatment systems. As mentioned, depending on the issue, we may use one or any combination of these technologies – 

Water Treatment for Vineyards
Water Treatment for Mixed Greens
  • Up to 300% increased dissolved oxygen
  • Creates an aerobic environment, water tanks to soils
  • Kills all coliform & pathogen bacteria on contact
  • Eliminates biofilm contamination from pipes, tanks & pumps
  • O3 protection from powder molds & other fungi
  • Creates hostile environment for microbial pests
  • Oxidation of minerals, heavy metals & organics
  • Increased yield through healthier plants
  • Reduction of crop loss
  • Organic, environmentally safe, residue-free
  • Reduction of chemical use
  • Decreases time to market
Water Treatment For Cannabis
Our ozone systems have positive impacts with all types of farming – but especially with extremely sensitive plants like Cannabis. Whether outdoor farming, greenhouses, or hydroponic, all farms recognize the immediate benefits of using Ozone produced water. Just one of many benefits of using water made with ozone is the increased levels of dissolved oxygen (DO), which alone, will create an aerobic environment for the plants resulting in the control or elimination of pathogens, reduction in crop losses, and increased plant health and yields.
