We also grow some of our vegetables that do not necessarily require the greenhouse environment in open-field using irrigation.
Irrigation is the act of artificially applying water to allow plants grow. This is particularly important in virtually every climate type like the northern Nigeria where there is limited amount of rainfall throughout the year and the south where you have almost half of the year without rainfall. It significantly increases yields as it allows the farmer grow in every season of the year and can be applied to any crop.
Fertigation rides on the irrigation system to enable the application of fertilizers, soil amendments or other water-soluble products thereby creating a more efficient and effective way to fertilize crops, saving time, money and improving yields.
