We both have the same VISION on WATER!
The mismanagement of water can be a major factor in the prosperity of agriculture and society as a whole. Our goal is to manage this resource responsibly to ensure that it will be there for future generations of farmers and at the same time, keeping our underground water sources clean and free of chemicals.
A day in agriculture is a long, fast paced cycle that doesn’t end when the sun sets. Take a look at what happens during a Rava Ranches day and can appreciate their contributions to our everyday meals.
Rava Ranches have many reservoirs to help improve water conservation and storage supplies. In those reservoirs there are systems in place that uses aerators to keep the water at proper aerobic levels and use Bio-Pond, a natural superlative beneficial microbes to breakout the excess nutrients, pull them away from the water column and restate the water to its naturally beautiful and healthy condition which prevent algae from growing without the use of undesirable side effects of chemicals.
“We started using BioPond products from Cisbay in the Spring of 2014 when our recreational and irrigation lake continued to look very unappealing and by all standards were very sick, even after several attempts at fixing the problem with other products and technologies.”

Before and After 48 Hours Treatment
“The results were significant even after the first application. We treated on an aggressive schedule for a short time and then cut back to a maintenance dose. The visual aspects of the water, algae growth and clarity of water were evident to the naked eye. The water quality tests showed the pH was balanced, the salts and nitrate levels were reduced, even with a heavy population of geese and ducks.”

Definitely a Win-Win
We have been very pleased with the results and the mitigated costs to control a problem we had experienced for a couple of years. The aesthetics of a beautiful body of water, along with improved quality of water for irrigating the vineyard is definitely a win-win.
