The benefits of fertigation and irrigation controlIrrigation – the process of artificially applying water to plants – has been in practice since as early as 6000 BC. There have been many advances in irrigation since then, and today's technologies have made it easier than ever to control water flow as well as fertilizers, nutrients, and other chemicals.What.....
UK: Attention to young plant nutrition pays off in strawberriesWe tend to focus on strawberry crop nutrition during the later growth stages and particularly from flowering onwards with the objective of maximising yields and quality. But optimum nutrition in the very early growth stages is also of paramount importance as this can significantly influence the later.....

Researchers discover greenhouse bypass for nitrogenRemoval of excess nitrogen (N) can best be achieved through denitrification processes that transform N in water and terrestrial ecosystems to di-nitrogen (N2) gas. The greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) is considered an intermediate or end-product in denitrification pathways. Both abiotic and biotic.....
Relationship between fertility extremes and growing medium pHThe pH of a growing medium increases or decreases depending on the fertilizer used, the crop grown, and the water alkalinity. However, pH change is usually gradual. When fertility levels in the growing medium are either very low or excessive, the pH of the growing medium can change rapidly. When the.....
How much acid is needed to reduce water alkalinity?To limit the upward climb of your growing medium's pH, acid may need to be injected into your water to reduce excess alkalinity. Water alkalinity is a measure of the carbonates and bicarbonates in the water and acts just like limestone in the growing medium.The higher the alkalinity, the more “limestone”.....
