IRRIGATION AND FERTILIZATION SYSTEMS
Irrigation is the supply of water, which the plant does not receive through natural precipitation, to the plant’s root zone by various methods. Greenhouse irrigation is the delivery of water needed for plant growth to the soil through various systems. To perform good irrigation, you need to choose the irrigation method according to the characteristics of the plant and the soil. Then you need to know when, how much and how to give water.
Drip irrigation is a method of dripping purified water and fertilizer onto the soil surface at short intervals under low pressure. In this method, the water can be directed to each plant through a common network of pipes. Drippers reduce the pressure in the piping network with a small orifice or a long flow path, allowing a small flow of several liters per hour.
Plant nutrients are used for the substances that plants absorb from the environment for their development, fertilizers are used for the substances that contain plant nutrients, and fertilization is used for the process of adding them to the plant’s growing medium. The purpose of fertilization is not only to release the nutrients needed by the plant into the environment but also to protect the plant’s growing environment and increase its productivity.
In collaboration with Keyway’s expert agricultural engineers and agricultural consultants, it ensures the selection of the most appropriate cultivation method, along with parameters such as region, temperature, light, depending on the targeted plants. For this, a correct irrigation and fertilization system, a machine, and a well-designed drip irrigation system are essential. Keyway project engineers provide 365-day maintenance and service for the world’s best irrigation and fertilization equipment.
Fertilization automation systems, used in greenhouse irrigation automation and outdoor irrigation, deliver the acid and fertilizer solution taken from the fertilizer tanks to the mixing tank as needed through a twoway valve system. When the values it receives from the sensors on it reach the set limits, it stops the flow to the tank. With this system, dosing is immediate and more precise. By premixing water and fertilizer with the fertilizer tank system, you get a homogeneous plant nutrient solution.
Irrigation tanks are the tanks established to store the water needed in the greenhouse. Generally, it is intended to install a tank equal to 2 days of water needs. The round steel is covered with PVC or PE film and covered with anti-moss tarpaulin. Silos can be delivered as building kits or fully assembled on-site, including excavation. The general uses of steel water tanks are clean water storage, drainage water collection, rainwater collection, fertilizer solution production, and softened water storage.
Fertilizer Tanks ensure that our plants receive the nutrients and rich fertilizers they need by mixing them in large mixing tanks. Liquid fertilizers used in greenhouses have many advantages, but despite these advantages, liquid fertilizers should be used and chosen with great care.
