Fertigation is a fertilizer program method, where dissolved fertilizers have been sent to the harvest through the irrigation method.
The most advanced greenhouse fertigation systems & technology provides the chance to apply precise levels of fertilizers and water into the harvest, and so, if made properly, can be a significant precision farming technology.
Normally, concentrated fertilizer alternatives are ready in tanks, and are subsequently injected into the irrigation water, utilizing fertilizer injectors. The irrigation system may be trickle irrigation, sprinkler system, pivot, or distinct configurations of hydroponic systems.
From the lack of a fertigation system, it's hard, or perhaps impossible, to use fertilizers when crops are bigger and accessibility to the area is constrained. In these scenarios, fertilizers are frequently applied too early, leading to a lack of nutrients due to leaching, volatilization, etc.
In many kinds of fertigation, this restriction doesn't exist. When the fertigation system is set up, fertilizers are readily implemented at the ideal growth phase, according to the necessities of the harvest.
Advanced fertigation systems may reach high-accurate program rates using high-tech gear, like injectors and automatic management systems, which can be calibrated and corrected. Automatic modification of injection ratios of these fertilizer alternatives from the inventory tanks into the irrigation water is based on input from EC and pH sensors, in addition to fertilizer and water flow meters.
Additionally, over 1 stock tank may be used, providing the grower the flexibility to use unique mixtures of nutrients to unique plots, or at several times, by adjusting another injection ratio for every container.
