Watering systems in horticulture: Efficient irrigation for optimal growth
Watering systems play an essential role in horticulture in delivering the right amount of water to crops at the right time. These systems ensure efficient irrigation and contribute to optimal plant growth and development. Various watering systems are available in the horticultural sector, such as sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation, ebb and flow floors, pouring trees and roof sprinklers.
Sprinkler systems are one of the most widely used watering systems in horticulture. These systems use sprinklers or sprinklers to distribute water evenly over the crop. Irrigation is especially suitable for crops that require good leaf wetting, such as vegetables and flowers. It is important to carefully match the irrigation system to the needs of the crops to avoid wasting water.
Drip irrigation is an efficient watering system in horticulture, delivering water directly to the root zone of the plants. This system uses drippers or drip hoses to deliver water drop by drop to the plants. Drip irrigation minimises water loss through evaporation and reduces weed growth. It also allows nutrients to be accurately delivered to plants, resulting in efficient use of water and fertilisers.
Ebb and flow floors
Ebb and flow floors are an automated watering system that uses water to moisten the root zone of plants. In this system, water is temporarily applied to the floor of the growing tables and then drained. This process creates a cycle of wetting and drying, which is beneficial for crops such as potted plants. Ebb and flow floors reduce water loss through evaporation and also minimise the risk of diseases that can spread through water droplets.
A casting tree is a useful tool for efficient watering or spraying of large areas in low crops within horticulture. Available in both manual and fully automatic variants, these machines are ideal for growers who need to water or irrigate large areas. Watering booms offer even distribution of water and minimise wastage.
Roof sprinklers are a specific type of watering systems used in greenhouses. These sprinklers are attached to the greenhouse roof and provide a uniform misting of water over the crops. Roof sprinklers help regulate temperature and humidity in the greenhouse, which is beneficial for the growth of certain crops. They also reduce the need for manual watering and minimise water loss through evaporation.
