The OptiBoost technology uses vacuum impregnation (VI) to prolong the lifetime of plant cuttings prior to planting. There are numerous benefits for the forest and horticulture industry generated by the OptiBoost method including better rooting and stronger branching.
In the first phase, the pressure is decreased, leading to the expansion of the gas in the pores of the material and partial flow of the gas out of the pores until mechanical equilibrium is established.
In the second phase, atmospheric pressure is restored causing the compression of the residual gas in the pores and the inflow of the liquid into the pores
The liquid phase infused into the material may have different properties, and VI can be thus used to change the composition of plant tissues.
The nutrient solution – OptiBona, is based on the latest generation of nanotechnology.
The tissue is immersed in the liquid and subjected to a two-phase pressure change.
