HOMEMADE FERTIGATION SYSTEM

Description: Fertigation is the application of nutrients through irrigation systems, a contraction of fertilization and irrigation to supply the plant with its daily demand of water

Fertigation is the process of applying fertiliser through an irrigation system. Instead of spreading fertiliser on the ground and hoping plants will take it up, fertigation delivers nutrients directly to the roots. It can have several benefits, particularly regarding reducing nutrient runoff. Fertigation is a widely used farming practice. It allows growers to save time, resources, and effort by completing two events at a time: fertilization and irrigation. Customization of modern fertigation systems and innovative satellite-based software enable pinpointing of variable rate fertilizer (VRF) applications. The most efficient fertigation systems are built on drip irrigation, which reduces inputs and delivers nutrients to the root zone. The technology is suitable for farm enterprises of any size since there are large and small-scale fertigation systems with manual or fully automated control.
