Why efficient irrigation is important
Water and fertilizers are essential for the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase your crop performance and your profit.
Water solutions for your horticultural company
With the sustainable automation solutions from Hoogendoorn you can regulate the irrigation in your greenhouse and in your open field cultivation in a targeted manner. The innovative iSii process computer precisely coordinates the dosage of various water sources such as rainwater, well water and drain water with the demands of the crop. Wherever possible, iSii also regulates the complete recirculation and disinfection of drain water. The advanced software proactively anticipates on changing conditions. For example, the frequency and duration of irrigation sessions are adjusted in advance to times of more or less sunshine. Based on the measured water intake of the plants and the water content of the soil or substrate, the irrigation can be tailored even more precisely to the growth process.
