- Nanobubble Technology
Chemical-free nanobubble technology can be installed to treat source water from wells, canals, reservoirs and basins to reduce algae and pathogen growth, improve water quality, and reduce the use of chemicals and pesticides. Nanobubble generators can also be installed on day tanks or inline before your valve zone or irrigation sector. Moleaer’s patented nanobubble generators are easy to integrate, install, and maintain — without overhauling your irrigation system.Our Products
Plants thrive in soils with good structure, ample microbial activity and available nutrients to develop healthy root systems and produce quality crops. However, farmers worldwide face challenging soil conditions from drought stress, exhaustion and poor-quality irrigation water. Nanobubbles have been scientifically proven as a chemical-free solution to improve soil conditions for growers, from reducing soil compaction to increasing soil aeration, nutrient availability and uptake efficiency.Download the Brochure
Scientific research and independent case studies show that nanobubbles increase soil flocculation, reduce compaction and increase capillary water distribution. Nanobubbles reduce the surface tension of water, improve water infiltration and percolation through the soil profile, improve salt leaching and get more water and nutrients to the root zone where plants need it. Nanobubbles decrease the size of nutrient clusters and raise ionic mobility aiding in increased nutrient availability and uptake efficiency. Plants grown with nanobubble irrigation water have a higher resilience against stress factors, improving crop quality and reducing crop loss for farmers.More About Soil Health
Nanobubbles improve soil to combat drought conditions for Noble Fruit, a cherry grower in Chile.
Moleaer’s nanobubble technology does two things: supersaturates irrigation water with dissolved oxygen and injects hundreds of millions of electrochemically charged nanobubbles that alter the properties of water to deliver multiple benefits.
Increased dissolved oxygen levels maximize oxygen utilization by plants and beneficial microbes in the rhizosphere, promoting healthy root development and improving plants’ resilience to environmental stressors such as drought and heat.
High concentrations of negatively charged nanobubbles reduce the surface tension of water and improve infiltration of soils and substrates as well as improve the capillary action of dissolved nutrients – a low-cost, synergistic input to reduce soil compaction and high salinity.
Nanobubbles also produce a natural, mild oxidant when they encounter contaminants in the water, reducing water-borne pathogens and algae. Their hard, stable shell allows them to abrade biofilm and scale from irrigation systems and coat piping walls in a thick layer to limit new accumulation – improving system hygiene and reducing treatment costs. These are just a few of the benefits nanobubbles offer growers.
Using nanobubble technology in farming has shown many benefits that help achieve a successful crop, such as:
• Better root development
• Increased microbial activity and healthier microbiome (microbial life)
• Better uptake efficiency of nutrients and water
• Increased penetration and infiltration of water into soil and substrates
• Reduction in plant disease and improved crop resilience
• Less soil compaction
These are just a few of the many benefits of nanobubble technology to plant health that, together with adequate moisture and organic matter lead to resilient and healthy crops.
Yes, the use of nanobubbles has been proven to have a direct impact on improving soil health and function which has been shown to lead to the growth of healthy, more productive plants.
Nanobubbles reduce the surface tension of water, improving infiltration and penetration into soils and substrates, so more water is available to the plant roots. Also, nanobubbles improve soil and substrate wettability, helping to combat hydrophobic soils. Reduced compaction of soils is possible with nanobubbles through their ability to flocculate clay particles and improve soil structure.
Other benefits include increasing soil aeration, which helps improve the microbiome health and aid in the microbial activity that is essential for healthy soils.
All of these benefits help farmers improve soil health without the use of chemicals.
Moleaer's nanobubble generators are designed to be easy to install, maintain, and integrate into your existing system. Nanobubble generators are easily installed on irrigation day tanks, storage basins, irrigation reservoirs, or inline between the water supply and the crops.
There is no need for massive upgrades or a complete overhaul of your current system to implement this cost-effective nanobubble technology.
Nanobubble water can be used to improve the health of a wide range of crops and plants.
Recent commercial case studies have shown that nanobubble technology is effective among growers of:
• Avocados - These plants are normally grown in clay soils and as such are prone to suffer from asphyxiation due to lack of dissolved oxygen in the root zone, which can be prevented by using nanobubbles
• Berries - The proper growth of berries, such as the Blueberries being grown in Chile, requires acidic soils and good-quality irrigation water to produce healthy fruit. Using nanobubbles improves both the dissolved oxygen supply and the development of healthy soil structure to boost root development in the soil-covered parts of the plant and result in the growth of healthy plants
• Citrus - World citrus production of fruits, such as oranges, lemons, grapefruits, pomelos, and limes, is facing a serious threat due to the increase in pests that target these fruit trees. Using nanobubbles not only helps to prevent root disease but also creates a soil environment that is not favorable for the growth of pests thus helping farmers manage their crops without having to resort to pesticides and other potentially harmful chemicals
In addition to these crops, Moleaer has over 1000 agriculture and horticulture installations that cover crops across the world and has successfully applied nanobubbles to tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, ornamental plants like Gerbera daisies, almonds, leafy greens and herbs, strawberries, hemp, and more.

Although nanobubble technology is a relatively new process compared to traditional irrigation methods, there are many peer-reviewed journal articles highlighting the benefits of nanobubbles in agriculture and greenhouses. Moleaer compiled some on the resources page.
