POWDER IN THE PLANTS

In the long term, the accumulation of dust in the foliage of the plant compromises the growth and vital functions of the plant.

It decreases the amount of light that the plant receives and its evapotranspiration is reduced, and, when all this occurs, chlorophyll does not occur at the same rate, the leaves begin to yellow and the plant growth is slower affecting the quality of the fruits.

To avoid this problem, different strategies are currently used: periodically spray the roads with water, apply a thin layer of asphalt, etc. However, in no case has the total effectiveness of these strategies been proven, in addition to being expensive or requiring constant maintenance, for example the water sprayed on the roads dries a few hours in the summer.

STABILIZATION OF SOILS

The stabilization of the soil or land consists in giving stability to the substrate, fixing it and guaranteeing the permanence of its compaction, avoiding above all the loss of the fines that give the soil consistency.

Thus, by stabilizing the soil it is possible to obtain control over its erosion and it is possible to extend its useful life, reduce its maintenance, and, most importantly, minimize the amount of suspended particles (the dust) that can cause adverse effects on the surrounding crops.
