Control apple size and yield with precision irrigation

Growing apples is all about controlling as many variables as possible to achieve uniform size and color as well as a longer shelf life. With precision irrigation, you can control both irrigation and nutrition needs.

Why choose drip irrigation for apples?


    • A perfect fit
      Modern apple cultivation favors high tree population and dense planting. Drip irrigation distributes water locally along narrow crop rows while keeping the surface between each row dry. Drip lines can be easily suspended on the trellising wire where it is kept from any machinery or animal related damage.
    • Ensure consistent production year over year
      Next year's crop depends on how you treat your orchard right now. Precision irrigation and fertigation guarantees healthy trees and spurs today, to boost production capacity tomorrow.
    • Reduce labor costs
      Do it once. Do it right. Harvest the entire orchard simultaneously since precision irrigation fosters uniform flowers and fruit development.
    • Size does matter
      Larger apples command higher prices. By irrigating and fertigating throughout the growing period, you can be sure that your apples will have exactly what they need to reach their optimal size.

Why precision irrigation?


    • Smaller root zones favor drip
      In modern orchards, dwarfing rootstock is commonly used to create compact trees. Although these trees deliver high yields and are easier to pick, their root zones are limited. Drip irrigation delivers water precisely, ensuring that no resources are wasted.
    • Stress-free fruit
      Water stress not only causes trees to drop fruit; it can also cause physiological disease which, in turn, reduces apple resiliency during cold storage. Don't sacrifice a portion of your yield.
    • Decrease humidity and prevent disease
      High humidity in your apple orchard is a one-way ticket to fungal diseases like scab and mildew. Drip irrigation avoids extra moisture, ultimately reducing spraying requirements.
