Ion-A-Gro, LLC is a newly formed company which has secured distribution rights from Zenion Industries, Inc. to market a unique ionization product specifically to legal Medical and Recreational cannabis growers.
Ion-A-Gro is a novel device, powered by either solar or artificial light energy, which helps most above-ground plants grow healthier and increase yield. Preliminary indications are it may also reduce the need for pesticides and mitigate problems with herbivores.
The company has been working with medical marijuana growers in the Northern California and other states to test on various strains of cannabis to determine if it could do for their crops what it has proven to do for tomatoes, grapes, etc. After just a few weeks, they reported their growth had increased enormously. In the words of Asa Shaeffer, CEO Sonoma County Collective, “We recently implemented the Ion-A-Gro units for all of our indoor grow rooms. After seeing the evidence for ourselves, we would wholeheartedly recommend the Ion-A-Gro units for anyone in the cannabis cultivation industry. It was a minimal investment for a measured result, enough said.”
The Ion-A-Gro is an eco-friendly electronic device powered by solar or artificial light energy which is mounted above plants to supply them with a steady stream of negative ions during photosynthesis. Decades of research have proven that plants respond quite favorably to atmospheric ionization in a natural non-harmful way, growing healthier and producing more fruit, flora and vegetables. Indications are herbivores, such as ants, spider mites and aphids, maybe discouraged from invading plants under treatment, thereby reducing the need for pesticides. Until now it has not been cost-effective to treat plants in this manner, but the Zenion technology changes all of that!
Ion-A-Gro is leveraging the experience of Zenion Industries, and specifically its founder and president, Jim Lee, who has spent over 10 years of self-funded research and development on this unique product. Zenion Industries, Inc. was established in 1979 and distinguished itself as an expert in the field of ionization physics and electronics by developing and patenting many products utilizing ion technology. The corporation invented over 20 products for The Sharper Image company alone, including the Ionic Breeze.
Extensive testing with all marijuana strains hasn’t been completed; however, successful experimentation has been done on numerous types of other plants including grapes, tomatoes, beans, and sugar cane. As Joe DeRobbio, industry consultant and company advisor, states, “I was skeptical at first but the results speak for themselves. I was amazed at the increased yields but even more astounded by the impact that ionization had on spider mites.”
From the backyard garden to large-scale grow facilities, this technology has the potential to increase quality and production substantially while offering a more sustainable growing solution for the the industry.
