Why closed loop irrigation systems are a relevant topic for growers

Live at Cultivate 2022, Kees van der Kruk, water systems manager at Priva, will present on commercial-scale recirculating systems and water-use efficiency in greenhouse cultivation. This session is the perfect opportunity to advance your knowledge of irrigation recirculation infrastructure, best practices for water management, and how data-driven solutions can increase production efficiency while minimizing your water footprint.

“When recirculating irrigation water, you’re reusing expensive fertilizers and perhaps elements that you do not want to release into the environment,” explains Kees, “and in areas where good quality fresh water is a limited resource, reusing the water is good for the environment and good for the bottom line.” Pressure from society and from governments in the form of regulation to stimulate growers to start recirculating their water is partly based on reducing emissions but also considers the availability of fresh water. And getting all of the potential out of the water is a sustainable and smart way of growing.
