Effective fertigation is a key component of any successful production system. Irrigating and feeding your plants is an essential action, but accurately measuring out nutrient quantities and control solution proportions is an action which can be time consuming and labour intensive – and potentially an activity where mistakes are made.
Using dosing pumps, either standalone or as part of a nutrient delivery system, can help to automate this process. These can allow a grower to stipulate the quantity and proportion of a nutrient to add to an irrigation solution, and this can happen automatically and continuously.
This approach is essential for any grow operation which is aiming to standardise cultivation approaches, in order to ensure a quality of production is maintained.
