Irrigation systems are one of the most important aspects of a greenhouse, for one obvious reason: they deliver water and nutrients to the crops. Increasingly efficient, they are the object of the ideas and innovation of companies and development centres in order to be even more optimal.
At J. Huete International, aware of the importance of these systems, we have a group of professionals in charge of designing this type of irrigation programmers incorporating the best equipment and materials, and with the appropriate characteristics for each greenhouse.
What is an irrigation system
Irrigation management systems are key factors in protected crops under cover. Choosing the right one for each installation, project or crop is vital for the correct functioning and development of production.
They are the set of structures that make it possible for the crops and the areas where they are located to receive the necessary water application. They are made up of a series of technological components that will define their operation depending on the crops they have to reach.
Types of irrigation systems in greenhouses
In J. Huete International we are specialists in all types of automatic irrigation systems and the elements that compose them, among which we can highlight:
Drip irrigation system:
Drip irrigation, localised or drop by drop, is used to locate the water at the foot of each plant, which infiltrates the soil or substrate to reach the roots directly. It works through pipes and other types of emitters, which saves large amounts of water by keeping the humidity level constant.
This is a variant of sprinkler irrigation but with a much shorter range of only two metres maximum and varies depending on the pressure. In greenhouses, it can be used mainly for vegetables and flowers.
It is used for narrower areas, so it is often seen in corridors to increase the relative humidity. It allows the regulation of water output, watering angles and distance.
In recent years, it has become more and more common. It is based on a pipe buried at the appropriate depth depending on the type of crop, with perforations that nourish the roots.
This is an irrigation system in which the roots are permanently in a mineral solution and receive the nutrients dissolved in it.
This is another system widely used in seedbeds and greenhouses. It consists of expelling water in the form of a mist by means of emitters located above the crops, called nebulisers.
