The benefits of NutrigationTM
The application of nutrients through irrigation systems is referred to as NutrigationTM or Fertigation. The incorporation of soluble fertilizers into the irrigation water is facilitated the integration and harmonization between the application of water and plant nutrients. Using NutrigationTM, an adequate supply of nutrients and water can be directed towards the plant root zone to satisfy plant demands during the various growth stages.
The daily application rate of nutrients through Nutrigation is changing during the growing season and is planned to follow plant daily demand according to its nutrients uptake pattern.
