Growers and Cultivation

The Issue

Whether you’re growing ornamental plants, cannabis, or food, mold, bacteria, and other pathogens can be your worst enemy. Spoilage microbes can cause food to rot extremely quickly, leading to huge losses of profit and large amounts of waste in the food vertical.

Pathogenic bacteria or viruses in the growing environment can cause sickness in food. A failed microbial analysis can cause the loss of part of or even a whole crop. Ornamental plant diseases can destroy your beautiful flowers.


Let SMT’s ultra-pure chlorine dioxide products help protect you! Our products can be used to eliminate or reduce bacteria, mold, and viruses in virtually any setting.

Validation of the use of chlorine dioxide in reducing microbial contamination on raw fruits and vegetables


Sanitize and disinfect food-contact surfaces, keep food fresh longer, and eliminate foodborne pathogens. Use Selective Micro-validated pure chlorine dioxide in reducing microbial contamination on raw fruits and vegetables. Pure chlorine dioxide was tested at 5 ppm concentration and for a total 1-minute contact time. The experiment was to determine the antimicrobial properties of pure chlorine dioxide after drop-spotting inoculation over each surface of raw agricultural commodity (RAC).
