Root Application

Root application consists in supply nutrients and products with biostimulant action directly to the plant roots. The most efficient and main method to perform root application is fertigation through drip irrigation, which is the application of plant nutrients through the irrigation system. In these systems fertilizers and biostimulants dissolved in water in irrigation system and the plant roots receive water and nutrients at the same time and location.

In fertigation, fertilizer application is made in small and frequent doses that fit within scheduled irrigation intervals matching the plant water use to avoid leaching. Fertilizer use efficiency up to  95% can be achieved through drip fertigation. Fertigation is a modern agro-technique, which provides an excellent opportunity to maximize yield and minimize environmental pollution.

In a fertigation system, the timing, amount, concentration, and ratio of the nutrients are easily controlled. Due to this improved control, crop yields and quality are higher than those produced by a simple fertilizer application. Fertigation is a widely used farming practice. The fertigation technique allows growers to save time, resources, and efforts by completing two events at a time: fertilization and irrigation.

A significant advantage of fertigation is the liquid form of nutrients distribution. Thus, plants can absorb them immediately after administration, which enhances their availability and efficiency. Root fertigation allows optimal nutrient supplies to the root zone, with minimum losses. It essentially reduces runoffs and wastes, especially due to downpours or flooding.

Fertigation scheduling depends on the crop needs within required time frameworks and may be performed daily, weekly, etc., according to the nutrient management plan. Besides, fertigation through drip irrigation permits the absence of machinery soil disturbance during fertilizer applications prevents earth compaction.

With the right fertigation techniques combined with an optimized nutrient program, it is possible to increase nutrient use efficiency, boost yields, increase yield quality, and dramatically decrease water use. For this reason, in regions where water is less available, fertigation becomes even more important.

Several Hello Nature fertilizers and biostimulants are specifically designed to boost fertigation. Our formulas won’t clog irrigation systems and mixes well with most crop protection products and other nutrients. The right fertigation program depends on plant species, soil type, irrigation equipment, and other factors. The Hello Nature fertigation fertilization plan is specific for every need and allows you to vitalize plant growth and help overcome such things as transplant stress, increase nutrient absorption capability, nutrient use efficiency and resistance.
