Water Application

Irrigation Implements

Drip irrigation is possibly one of the most efficient methods of irrigation for greenhouse tunnel farming.   In most cases, it can reduce water usage by as much as 50% due to the water being applied directly to where it is needed.  Not only can you save water with this system, but you could also increase your yield as the water and nutrient concentration is improved.


The amount of water application and timer settings is vital to the success of a drip irrigation system and requires a certain level of management and maintenance.  You would have to continuously check that no blockages exist in the system.   

Your pH (acid/alkaline) and EC (electrical conductivity) levels are essential for quality plant health and growth.  Therefore, it is only natural to assume that one of the best greenhouse equipment irrigation systems  to use would be the dripper method.
