Automated irrigation and fertigation systems can dramatically increase crop yield and improve quality. The systems provide precise control on the amount and timing of water and nutrients delivered to the plants. The two systems worked in an integration fashion to determine the right mix required.
Planning a proper approach to proper watering and feeding can be complex when breaking down the greenhouse into zones and adding re-circulating systems.
The leachate (water that runs past the roots) must be handled properly - either reused with water treatment (UV, bio-filtration, ozone, etc.) or disposed of within local guidelines. With today's heightened sensitivity to environmental problems and the shortage and increasing cost of resources, the benefits to implementing the most current technologies to control irrigation and fertigation are more easily realized than ever.
