Incoming water is the starting point of every irrigation system. To ensure this is of the right quality and before it is dosed to the plants, we have multiple pre-treatment solutions.
With a good quality of water to start with, we design, engineer and manufature high tech fertilization units, for growers to create their plant recipes with minerals and nutrients.
- Dosing & Control
While the plant recipes are being created, our custom-made dosing units make it possible to dose the prepared fertilized water with the highest accuracy. In this step, we also analyse the plants' behaviour with scales and sensors to learn and further fine-tune the plant recipes.
Fertilized drain water is collected via gutters or table systems and can be reused. The post-treatment ensures that this water is of good quality and is free of micro-organisms and particles, but still contains the minerals, before it returns to the irrigation system.
- Drain Water Recycling
Water from the post-treatment is reused as "clean drain water". This is selected as water source by the fertilization-unit and forms the basis for new recipes, as it already contains valuable minerals.
Irrigation in greenhouses
Unprecedented precision in our irrigation systems
Growing more with less
The Dutch Horticulture sector has led the way in pioneering hydroponics technology, providing unprecedented control over water, dosage, and, notably, irrigation. This innovative approach to irrigation has undergone numerous developments, achieving water efficiency levels of 90-95% compared to conventional outdoor farming methods.
Beyond water conservation, our advanced greenhouse irrigation systems are instrumental in preserving valuable fertilizers. By recycling drain water and reintegrating it into the irrigation system, we create a nutrient-rich foundation for formulating new irrigation recipes.
In optimizing irrigation practices, we contribute to sustainability and resource conservation, ensuring that the term "irrigation" is synonymous with efficiency, innovation, and environmental stewardship in the realm of Dutch Horticulture.
