Sustainable Food Production Through Fertigation System

Fertigation is an agricultural technique that maximizes crop yield through controlled application of water and fertilizers. This application also ensures that negative effects of fertilizer leaching to the roots, soil and groundwater are avoided. When applied in a soilless system, where substrates and media such as rockwool, perlite, vermiculite or peat are used, cultivation of food crops can be done on infertile lands or urban areas. Elimination of soil also improves yield through prevention of soil-borne diseases and increases multiple growing cycles without the need to replenish nutrients and soil conditioning. Furthermore, fertigation under a rain-shelter system allows cultivation of crops in areas where excessive rain, sunshine or wind inhibits conventional cultivation of the required food crops.
