    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19  

    For this reason, it becomes essential to select an efficient and economical irrigation system. The market offers various systems including the most well-known and widely-used option of central pivot and the newer solution of drip irrigation. What are the differences between the two systems?Among the relevant differences to consider is the investment cost, adaptability to the rotation, weather conditions, irrigation availability and the efficiency of any fertigation. Pivot vs Drip irrigation: economic comparisonsIn a study conducted by the University of Turin, the costs and efficiency of the two systems were analyzed. Researchers considered the same water supply and an average life of 10 years for the surface drip irrigation and 20 years for the pivot...

In the United States, SDI is widely used to irrigate annual crops; elsewhere, the irrigation system is popularly used for orchards and other perennials... Using an SDI system provides high water-use efficiency and savings of 25-50% compared to flood irrigation. Using SDI also has a positive effect on the environment through reduced nitrate leakage in the lower soil layers, unlike other irrigation systems... History of Subsurface Drip Irrigation Technological advances within the plastics industry have led to significant progress for irrigation systems...

    Why is soil salinization a problem?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Aug 21, 2019  

    What’s Soil SalinizationSoil salinization is one of the most vital soil problems for agricultural production... In these areas where plant growth requires irrigation, the Evaporation and transpiration process leaves salt in the soil... Why Does Soil Salinization OccurSeveral factors contribute to an increase in the amount of salt in the soil:Irrigation Water Quality & VolumeThe total amount of dissolved salt in irrigated water and its composition affects soil salt content. The more water you irrigate, the salinity of the soil will be close to the salt concentration of the irrigation water... Control irrigation water volumeApply minimal levels of irrigation water volume and keep the well-drained soil condition...

    Hydroponics 101: A Basic Guide to Start Soilless Cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 20  

    Advantages and disadvantages of soilless cultivationSoilless cultivation has numerous advantages like:- Increasing unit yields and anticipating harvest- Improving the quality of the final product, such as the size and uniform physical-chemical characteristics of the fruits, due to the controlled and accurate management of nutrition and climatic parameters- Using easily replaceable structures in case of reconversion- Reducing the labor for demanding processing operations, such as tillage and soil disinfection- Reducing water consumption, especially in plants managed in a closed cycle in areas with limited water availability- Reducing the use of pesticides and adopting integrated pest management strategies more easilyAlthough the advantages can be very encouraging in the decision to adopt these systems, it is also necessary to consider the disadvantages and difficulties that must be faced: - Insufficient know-how to understand how to manage fertigation, irrigation, crop care and automatic control unit technology - Need for constant monitoring of various parameters, such as EC, pH, nutrient solution recipe and climate- Greater risk of incurring water or saline stress in case of a blackout, which renders the whole system unusable - Medium-high initial investments - Difficulty in reaching potential productions in the first years, due to facilities management problems - Difficulty in disposing of inorganic substrates at the end of use - Dispersion of the exhausted nutrient solution in the surface layers when using open-cycle systemsWhen you decide to cultivate with a soilless system, you need to choose the ideal system type depending on the place where you intend to work, the plant species, the size, and the budget available... Source: Growilla HydroponicIn systems that involve the use of pots and the substrate, the nutrient solution is provided by a drip irrigation system... However, the irrigation system requires special attention: periodic maintenance and disinfection are necessary to avoid the occlusion of the drippers... The irrigation plan management is equally important so that water imbalances do not occur: ideal irrigation must return a drainage water volume of around 30% of the volume applied... The main periodical or daily activities are:- Monitoring the pH and EC in the nutrient solution (Inlet, outlet and on the drained one)- Monitoring the applied and drained irrigation volumes (make sure that the drainage is 30% of the volume applied)- Monitoring the temperature, humidity and solar radiation - Checking the occlusion status and the correct positioning of the drippers (they must not be too far from the root zone)- Monitoring oxygenation level in the nutrient solution, in the case of the floating system- Monitoring periodic plants health (physiological alterations, pests or fungal attacks)- Wearing protective suits and shoe covers...

    A Farming Productivity Tool for the New Year

    By AgFuse Administrator

    Updated Dec 26, 2019  

    Farming is such a unique occupation because the intensity of our work oscillates with the seasons. For most farmers, winter marks a time for some rest and reflection--and a new year ushers in new hope... I want to have X amount of acres under irrigation... Are any of the three-year or one-year objectives supporting a long-term objective? For example, if your ten-year objective is to have one-thousand acres under irrigation on your farm and your one-year objective is to install one-hundred acres worth of irrigation, then you have a milestone along the way to achieving your larger, long-term vision... For example, you may not identify a daily habit that’s related to your objective of having one-thousand acres under irrigation, but maintaining a clean fleet of equipment could be as easy as making end-of-day equipment cleanup a habit...
