EarthWise has partnered with ICL Fertilizer, the USDA and the University of Connecticut to prove effectiveness of our CLEAN technology in countering biofouling and odor in fertilizer used in Open Field Agriculture. ICL Fertilizers is one of the world’s largest fertilizer companies, providing farmers, growers, and manufacturers on five continents with a wide range of high-performance plant nutrition solutions.
“CDC estimates that each year 1 in 6 Americans get sick from contaminated food or beverages and 3,000 die from foodborne illness. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that foodborne illnesses cost the United States more than $15.6 billion each year”. CDC May 2022
Earthwise is working with the USDA and the University of Arkansas using our game-changing nano bubble technology to demonstrate the cleaning power of bursting nano bubbles combined with the sanitation of Ozone in poultry processing.

“As growers contend with climate change impacts, growing crops in a controlled environment is beneficial Earthwise technology helps growers maximize yields with lower nutrient inputs und…er smaller contained growing environments.” Molly Willard, project manager for Agricultural Training and director of Vermont Tech’s Institute for Applied Agriculture and Food Systems
Below is an economic analysis of the production of lettuce in a hydroponic greenhouse over a 12-month period. The analysis is based on research done by Vermont Technical College in March of 2022. The analysis demonstrates the effects of Earthwise technology that result in a clear increase in profits for growers.
An economic analysis of the production of lettuce in a controlled environment greenhouse of 17,000 sq. feet. The analysis compares the use of EarthWise watering systems with ultrafine (micro) bubbles versus production of lettuce using normal water
