Willoway Nursery Tests System For Precision Nutrient Control

This last article in the Water Wisely series presents a case study using previously presented concepts in our series on nutrient management and water delivery systems. These concepts allow growers to precisely manage nutrient supply to plants, which improves plant health and reduces fertilizer inputs. Taking the 4R (right source, right rate, right time, right place) principal into account, I developed the Controlled Nutrient Delivery MicroFeed System (CNDMS), which is leading to advancements in water and nutrient management practices. This system was designed to meet all of the plant’s requirements with accurate control over each input. This revolutionary approach to precise plant nutrition is the result of collaboration between innovative scientific research and progressive technology, formulating the most accurate system available in the nursery, vegetable and floriculture industries. Generally speaking, the key characteristics for generating successful nursery and floriculture crops are proper plant nutrition and appropriate irrigation to meet plant […]
