Ukrainian water system helps Anglesey farmers grow better

A grower has reaped the rewards following a successful trial of a revolutionary Ukrainian irrigation system. Supported by Menter Mon’s Tech Tyfu vertical farming project – based on Anglesey – Snowdon Valley Farm has tested the Adam’s Water technology and seen a significant increase in the size, quality, and yield of its fruit and vegetables.

Warren Priestley, who, together with Len and Gareth Griffith-Swain, launched the farm business (Fferm Cwm yr Wyddfa) in Waunfawr two years ago, says the process destroys complex compounds of mineral fertilizers for better availability of nutrition, accelerating plant growth and fruit ripening.

It also improves the quality of saline irrigation water, reduces the harmful effects of hydrocarbons on the plant, and could lead to a 10 percent increase in yield. “We are incredibly honored to have been the first farm in the UK to use Adam’s Water technology and have noticed a difference in our produce, particularly the tomatoes and cucumbers,” said Warren.

“We split the polytunnel into two halves, and on the side using this process, there was on average, a 10 percent increase in size and much more with certain varieties.
