Precision irrigation feeds the plant, not the soil. That’s a big deal. When you deliver water and nutrients straight to the root zone of the plant, you lower costs. More importantly, you produce higher yields of healthier crops. Wherever you are, whatever your challenges. Scroll down to see three ways precision irrigation changes agriculture for the better.
Older drip irrigation methods, with higher delivery rates caused challenges concerning control over the depth of irrigation. This resulted in more frequent and shorter irrigation cycles, of sometimes less than one hour per cycle. The result was oversaturated conditions in the subsoil, and low hydraulic performance of systems due toe filling and draining losses.
Oversaturated conditions result in bad soil aeration and create stressful conditions for the plant roots. Excessive water also leaches beneficial plant nutrients below the active root zone, resulting in less nutrients available to crops and groundwater contamination. Continuous irrigation helps to balance the air-water ratio in the soil and targets water and fertiliser application in the root zone.
