The aim of this project was to field-test sound irrigation practices and band application of various types of fertilizers at ridging time to eliminate fertigation and increase the efficiency of fertilizer and water use under plastic mulch.
From 2016 to 2018
Fruit production, Market gardening
Optimal water management, Fertilizer management
This project demonstrated that growers can eliminate fertigation through the use of slow-release fertilizers.
The purpose of this project is to test the general hypothesis that biobased polymers can be used to replace fossil-fuel-based products and reduce the use of pesticides without increasing GHG emissions.
