Effects of chlorine and ultra-violet light in disease control in NFT

, : Effects of chlorine and ultra-violet light in disease control in NFT. Acta Horticulturae (98): 317-323

Both treatments were effective in reducing numbers of potentially pathogenic types of bacteria in the nutrient solution used in the nutrient film technique. Chlorination, when used at a rate as effective as UV irradiation, caused root damage.

Glass, Jerzy., 1931: Changes in the chlorine distribution in blood under the influence of ultra-violet light. The object of the investigation was to determine the influence of ultra-violet radiation on the acid-base equilibrium of the blood, by a study of the changes induced in the partition of chlorides between corpuscles and plasma. The work was done on...

A study with measured monochromatic energy reveals a characteristic curve of bactericidal effectiveness with...
