Irrigation System

The irrigation system was developed based upon the concepts of microprecision irrigation 13 Only the proper amount of nutrient solution for a particular plant (or for a particular cell of a tray) is delivered from this irrigation system Therefore no draining or recycling process is needed and a very high efficiency of water usage can be expected It is also possible to adjust the amount of
