Fertigation refers to the process by which fertilizer is dispersed and distributed with water in your drip irrigation or spray irrigation system. Research supports the superiority and efficacy of fertigation systems over traditional fertilizing methods. Micro-dosing and fertigation are the best options to ensure the healthiest and greenest lawns.

Because a properly designed system can perform accurately and is easy to set up, it is also cost-effective, simple to use, efficient, and will save you time, labor, and, most importantly, money. Fertigation is becoming more popular in the industry. A properly designed system will eliminate waste, sludge, and residues. This system allows you to fine-tune fertility levels and monitors the rate of fertilizer application.
Fertigation is a simple and effective way to maintain soil nutrients on a regular basis. Fertigation can help maintain a steady supply of certain nutrients in sandy soils with low native fertility. It will also reduce the nutrient leaching, volatilization, and other problems that are associated with time-release granular fertilizers which typically have a 40-50% absorption rate.
Fertigation reduces the requirement for fertilizer. Fertigation works by introducing low amounts of fertilizer to the irrigation water stream. Studies have shown that fertilizer nutrients are more effective when mixed with water. This contrasts with bulk broadcast fertilization, where fertilizer is applied topically to the soils and not through rain or irrigation.
