Drip Fertigation Using Drip Systems
Drip irrigation offers many benefits to growers, especially compared to traditional irrigation methods. For example, it’s an excellent way to eliminate surface runoff, besides flexibility in fertigation.
Additionally, drip irrigation provides excellent uniformity of water distribution. Today, growers want more control regarding the placement and supply rate of water-soluble fertilizers to their plants. Suitable fertigation method should offer high water and fertilizer use efficiency.
Drip fertigation using quality fertilizers delivers water and nutrients directly into the root zone of the plant. The technique enables easy application of fertilizers using the irrigation water. Through drip systems, fertilizers are applied frequently at low concentration, thus meeting the plants’ nutritional needs.
Maintaining proper salinity moisture content
Through drip irrigation, water is delivered at high frequencies to the soil, thus a rapid increase in the moisture content. In the process, the salt content of the soil becomes nearly similar to that of the water used for irrigation. It’s the method of choice to prevent possible salt stress to the plants. Also, drip irrigation allows selective wetting of soil, thus significant savings in both water and fertilizers.
Essential Rules to follow
Drip lines can easily clog with solid precipitates from the solution. In this regards, below are some of the fundamental rules you need to observe
1. Using soluble fertilizers that dissolve entirely. The goal should be to prevent any residue.
2. Avoid mixing incompatible chemicals. It’s essential to note that some chemical combinations cause precipitates, thus causing the drip emitters to clog. For proper mixing of fertilizers, the different fertilizers should be sufficiently soluble.
3. Make sure the fertilizer is entirely dissolved before application.
4. Ensure that the fertilizer concentration is well diluted.
5. Proper application rate
The ideal application rate may vary based on factors such as pH level and degree of deficiency. We recommend consulting your agronomist for more accurate application.
