Introduction to Plasma Technology in Agriculture
Plasma technology was developed by the Iranian nuclear engineer, Mehran Tavakoli Keshe. It is basically a spaceship technology but has many uses and applications in diverse scientific disciplines and professions. In agriculture, plasma technology is increasingly transforming people’s understanding of plants and soils, and their diverse magnetic and gravitational fields' interactions with their environments. With this new understanding, plasma scientists and agricultural practitioners are, in turn, revitalizing agricultural development, research, and education and practice across the world. The new plasma science and technology has potential to completely revolutionize agricultural practices, enhance environmental health and healthy living for both producers and consumers, and virtually eliminate external inputs in agricultural systems across the world. Plasma technology in agriculture adheres to the ethos and standards of conduct as set by Mehran Tavakoli Keshe and the Keshe Foundation.
Gasses in Nano State (GANS)
With full understanding of how plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, Mehran Tavakoli Keshe designed a technology that replicates a plant’s leaf for the effective capture of CO2 and other gases in their Nano states (GANS). A gas in Nano state is a new state of matter, where a gas molecule that becomes Nano of itself appears as a solid state of matter (Keshe, MT, 2011. The Structure of Light). It is especially this seemingly simple GANS capture technology that will completely transform global agricultural development and practice once and for all.
Transforming agriculture with CO2 GANS
CO2 GANS are increasingly used to transform agriculture practices across the world. Before sowing, for example, seeds are soaked in CO2 GANS liquid plasma to decontaminate any that may be disease infected or adulterated, while irrigation of crops with CO2 liquid plasma virtually eliminates the need for fertilizers and pesticides. The use of CO2 liquid plasma and other such liquid plasmas increasingly provide the much needed agriculture solutions for enhancing plant growth, ensuring plant health, and increasing crop yields at minimum cost to producers.
Crop diseases and pests
For plant diseases, CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates conditions in the plant environment under which those diseases cannot exist. For crop pests, application of CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates conditions under which the pests do not damage crops. In addition, pests also absorb the energy of the applied CO2 GANS liquid plasma. When they absorb enough energy for their bodies' metabolism, such pests do not need to feed on the crops, thus application of CO2 GANS liquid plasma creates a win-win condition for both crops and their erstwhile pests.
