For many growers, boosting efficiency in the greenhouse has become a critical focus. While improving the effectiveness of all greenhouse functions should be the end goal, a great place to start is with one of the most essential tasks for any grower. With the increasing danger of longer-lasting droughts, efficiently watering crops has become a serious concern throughout the horticulture industry.
Inefficient watering leads to increased waste, poor nutrient uptake, stunted plant growth and, as a result, lower overall yield. For these reasons, if they haven’t already, growers should consider outfitting their greenhouse with an irrigation system. Installing an automated irrigation system into any grow can provide improvements in water and nutrient usage, reducing waste and lowering costs, while simultaneously enhancing crop development.
