What is fertic.com?

Fertic.com is an extensive archive of agronomic information on agricultural techniques related to fertigation.

Grouped in specific categories, we classify and organise the knowledge we have gained over more than 20 years in the agriculture sector, which includes information on fertigation systems and their applications in modern irrigation systems.

The automotive sprinkler irrigation system is designed to reduce the costs of a cover irrigation system, and to eliminate the entire piping system, main and secondary, inside a farm.
Fertigating blueberries requires greater precision given the particular demands of this crop.
By controlling the application of fertilising products, we can optimise concentrations and ratios between nutrients, creating well-balanced solutions.
We understand fertigation as the application of nutritional products to crops.
Given the characteristics of the filter and sprinkler heads most commonly found in irrigation communities, in addition to the need to work at a range of flow rates, what we need is a device that can adapt the injection to them.
The use of irrigation water as a vehicle for fertilising crops has been a common practice in intensive farming for decades, and more recently it has also crept into extensive farming.
Unlike most crops, in which performance can be determined by yielding a certain amount of fruits, flowers or vegetables, in golf courses the end goal is ornamental performance.
Managing the fertigation system requires in-depth knowledge of the crop's needs during each season, including both nutrients and water.
These are systems that are installed in the irrigation line. Their pressure comes from a small head loss in the system.

Preparing the solution

One of the benefits of fertigation is its ability to provide crops with nutrients through the rational use of fertilisers by dosing them in the irrigation water.

Piston pumps

Piston dosing pumps are a type of electric positive displacement pumps with a repeated movement that are used to inject fertilisers and chemical products.

Diaphragm pumps

Diaphragm or membrane dosing pumps are a type electric of positive displacement pumps with a repeated movement that are used to inject fertilisers and chemical products.

Venturi

Venturi injection is one of the most widely used methods, and it operates based on the effect that bears the same name. It consists of producing a sharp decrease in the pressure that a liquid exerts when flowing through a narrower section of pipe. This depression is enough to suck the nutritional solution into the flow from an open tank.

The benefits of fertigation

Fertigation is a cultivation technique that consists of applying fertilisers via technical irrigation systems. The goal of fertigation, together with water and fertilisers, is to save nutrients and water and to increase crop yield.

Improved fertiliser application process

Homogeneous and simultaneous distribution. The nutrients are applied to the roots.

Only the exact amount of water and fertilisers needed is used

The water and nutrients are placed directly in the root’s absorption area.

More efficient use of the inputs applied

By optimising water and fertiliser use, their costs go down.

Environmentally friendly

Soil and subterranean water contamination is minimised.

Improved crop yield and quality

Multi-injection means that the fertiliser can be spread throughout the irrigation water.

Automation and control

It offers greater control over the crop through the automated management of water and fertiliser.
