Fighting World Hunger With New Technology

MATCHING FUNDS DRIVE
Zenion/Jim Lee has initiated a "Matching" campaign to provide Ion-A-Gro products to needy farmers. Every $25 donated gets one unit shipped free to developing country small farmer!
"The Greenest of Green"
Imagine, if you will, if we could increase crop yields by 30% or more while simultaneously optimizing water use and minimizing infestation by insects. Imagine doing this without chemicals, herbicides, or genetic alterations. Imagine further, if we can accomplish this with a zero carbon footprint by using solar power only. Well, this product does exactly that! By safely ionizing the carbon dioxide and oxygen the plant absorbs during photosynthesis, a more efficient metabolic rate is achieved resulting in higher yields. This whole process occurs within the natural diurnal (daily) cycle plants follow. Most insects (herbivores) are discouraged from feeding upon treated plants due to the harmless electric field generated during the process. The poor truck farmer in east Ethiopia will be able to simply hang one of the devices above a group of plants (up to 12 plants), then just go about his normal routine. Later, he will realize he has a healthier crop producing more fruits or vegetables with less water (more absorption and less loss to evaporation) and fewer insect issues. He may also experience shorter crop cycle time and less fertilizer demand. After harvest he will simply wipe clean the solar array on the top of the unit and the pure tungsten emitter on the bottom of the device and be ready to use it again in additional growth cycles year after year. Yes, it is going to rain and be overcast some days. Also, prevailing winds are going to blow away the majority of ions the device is producing. All of these factors have been considered and dealt with in the design of this device. The waterproof device will shut down in some circumstances then restart when conditions improve. The minimum ion concentration required by most plants have been calculated through years of research; thus, losses due to environmental effects have been factored into the design to insure plants received an average needed concentration through an entire growth cycle. And NO, the device does not use radioactive isotopes or generate ozone or oxides of nitrogen. It is completely safe! Indoors, the Ion-A-Gro can be operated using grow lights or with an included wall adapter to power the device on a 24/7 basis if desired. The wall adapter uses less than 1/10 of a watt of energy, making it extremely energy efficient.
