Hypochlorous Acid From Electrolyzed Water is Now Approved For Organic Crop Production
Encinitas, California | April 16, 2019 – California startup, Plant Aid, an agriculture company who specializes in the development of eco-friendly, non-toxic products formulated with Hypochlorous Acid from Electrolyzed Water (or HOCl) recently announced its solutions are now approved for use in Organic Crop Production. HOCl is a chemical compound that is produced when you apply a low-voltage charge to saltwater. This is the same compound that is naturally produced by human white blood cells when the body encounter infections, viruses, or even cuts and burns. Plant Aid uses HOCl to clean plants for optimal health, as well as to clean facilities for optimal cleanliness. In many ways, this is a new approach to dealing with the many threats that growers deal with both indoors and outdoors. However, years of research have shown that a clean plant is a healthy plant, and this is the message that Plant Aid is focused on relaying to the larger agriculture industry.
“We are extremely proud and excited that HOCl is now approved for use in Organic Crop Production. It has been our goal from the start to create a solution that would clean plants so that they are in a condition that allows them to fight for themselves. The industry has been so focused on using toxic chemicals that are designed to kill. Now, using a solution that isn’t threatening to the environment or humans, we can focus on cleaning. In this respect, it’s massive for HOCl to be approved for use in the organic space”, says Jakob Piccoli, Plant Aid, Founder & CEO.
HOCl was approved for Organic Crop Production on April 10, 2019. Learn more and refer to regulations in full here: Electronic Code of Federal Regulations
