As a potato grower, there is great opportunity to improve your overall production by increasing productivity with drip irrigation.
Potatoes have shallow root systems and are highly susceptible to damage and disease from over or under watering. Getting the right amount of water and fertilizer to the roots is critical to maximize yields while meeting the strict market requirements of fresh and processed potatoes.
Drip irrigation allows you to effectively manage your water application and maintain a consistent soil moisture level so that you don’t over or under irrigate the plants. It also allows for the accurate and effective application of chemigation easily and uniformly to the root zone, saving on input and labor costs.
