Fertigation systems offer the producers a higher fertilization option. Traditional fertilization systems can be tricky. They can maneuver involving several heavy bags for the distribution and application of water to allow the fertilizer to properly soak into the ground. At best, it’s time and messy; at worst, it can harm plants and harm the environment.
For these reasons, most producers choose to use simple fertigation system. Fertigation is simply the practice of applying fertilizer through an irrigation system. By integrating fertigation in an operation, producers are able to improve their yields and increase their profits, and this is especially true for applying to commercial transactions.
Important advantages of the fertigation system
The measurement of each batch comes with two problems. First, it takes a long time and secondly, it carries a high risk of error. Fertigation, particularly when automated, addresses both problems at once. Fertigation crops are less susceptible to pests, diseases and leaf blight, which refers to browning or yellowing leaves edges due to contact with fertilizers
Fertilizer spreaders traditional fertilizers tend to occur outside of the irrigation area, so it can not be taken up by the roots. Plants that are fertilized absorb more nutrients than non-fertigation counterparts. Indeed, nutrients and placement of water are so precise, the growth of the plant is optimized at each stage of the life cycle.
Wind can adversely affect the traditional fertilization process by creating runoff, but this can only happen with fertigation since the plants receive the right amount of nutrients and water they need, exactly when they need it. In addition, the nutrients can still be applied to the soil by fertigation, even if the soil problems are present.
