The solution is all in solution!
No matter where you are or what you grow, you’ve probably noticed two trends:
- Rain is an increasingly unreliable source of water for crops.
- Each year brings a few more diseases and insect pests to your area.
Gardeners and farmers are having to irrigate when and where they’ve never had to before, and they are having to manage new, unfamiliar diseases and pests. It can be hard to decide whether it’s worth the time and expense to irrigate or spray. If you’re taking the time to water or spray your crop, why not boost the water with some extra nutrients or beneficial organisms?
Fertigation means adding water-soluble products to an irrigation system. Foliar sprays can be applied on a small scale with pump sprayers. Check out the chart to learn about all the great things you can use to supercharge your water!
