BAD SAULGAU, Germany, Dec, 28. 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Capillary or subsurface irrigation eliminates evaporation, wind drift and runoff. Water is applied to the exact area the plant needs it to be, as it is unable to absorb water through its leaves. By irrigating from above, only one third of the applied water actually reaches the root area. On large surfaces such as parks, gardens, sporting grounds and agricultural fields this adds up to an enormous amount of water simply being wasted. Depending on turf characteristics, we are able to reduce water consumption by up to 70% compared to conventional irrigation methods.
Capillary or subsurface irrigation improves quality and looks of turf as well as plants by significantly increasing root growth and mass. Green areas are more resilient against infestations and develop significantly higher resistance to wear and tear (e.g. increased playability of sporting grounds without damaging the turf). Minerals already contained in the water are directly absorbed by the root system, minimising the need for extra fertiliser. The system specifically designed for highly frequented sporting grounds comes with fully automated aeration, gas exchange, active drainage and fertilisation.
A significant step towards more environmental protection
OSMO-DRAIN® is a special process whereby the injection and extraction of water and air is used to control the biological and physical characteristics of the soil layers in a natural and sustainable manner in such a way that consistently optimal conditions for growth are created in all vegetation regions. The water-conserving effect is of particular significance in arid regions. It is designed to provide environmental protection in consideration of the fact that currently there is no other known and field-tested process that consumes less water.
