In the table grape market, grapes must be beautiful and perfectly shaped, but that’s not enough; they also need to feature the right symmetry and maturation. Precision irrigation gives you control of both water and fertilizer, so you can produce high quality grapes in consistent cluster every time.
Why should I choose drip irrigation over sprinklers for my table grapes?
Drip irrigation provides optimal, uniform soil moisture and outstanding aeration, which is critical for cultivating marketable table grapes. As no water is wasted due to run-off or evaporation, drip saves 30% on water and energy costs when compared to sprinkler irrigation. Delivering nutrients directly to the roots means that there is no weed growth between vine rows, and more importantly, moisture levels within the canopy remain low, reducing the risk of threatening foliar diseases.
Can drip irrigation systems be activated remotely?
Yes. Advanced digital tools allow you to activate and manage both irrigation and fertigation from the palm of your hand, wherever you are. You can also utilize additional digital tools like soil moisture and plant sensors to optimize your yields and resources.
