Capsicum, which is also known as green pepper, sweet pepper, etc., is one of the highest grown crops in India. It is best grown in a milder climate, however, can be grown in almost all the types of soils. Capsicum cultivation, nevertheless, has some challenges tethered to it. Of course, the weather is one important aspect, but it is the quality and the quantity of the yield, along with the higher investments of resources that predominantly confront capsicum growers across the country.
While the conventional techniques, often have been observed to be meeting with little success in delivering a higher capsicum yield, it is precision irrigation that offers a solution to almost every concern that capsicum growers are currently facing in the country. Through the modern irrigation techniques employed in precision irrigation, capsicum cultivation could result in lesser hassles and more profits for the farmers. Netafim’s precision irrigation is primarily aimed at simplifying capsicum cultivation and making it a profitable venture for capsicum growers.
The foremost, of course, is the quality of the yield, and its quantity, which often goes down the drain on account of the conventional irrigation techniques that deliver water and nutrients, but not in the required quantities. So, the crop roots are either over hydrated or remain under-hydrated. Now, that’s just one concern though, the other ones being excessive use of priceless resources such as water, labor, fertilizers, etc. The excessive use of these resources ends up in excessive costs, thus increasing the investment, but which isn’t really substantially recovered, as the crop growth is never economically fruitful enough.
Besides, capsicum growers are, at times, compelled to cultivate a smaller chunk of land on account of hefty costs involved in transporting water to the cultivable land mass, and which again hampers the quantity of capsicum yield. But, Netafim’s precision irrigation is a guaranteed solution that helps capsicum growers all these challenges and ensures that the yield is high-quality and highly profitable as well.
Precision irrigation brings tangible results to capsicum cultivation, and therefore a lot of farmers across the country are resorting to precision irrigation. This is because precision irrigation offers vital nutrients, water and fertilizers directly to the crop root zone, and in the required quantities. It results in the following benefits to capsicum cultivation and also the cultivators.
Netafim offers comprehensive and sustainable precision irrigation solutions that start from designing the precision irrigation system based on the land to be cultivated and other prevailing conditions. This ensures that the project meets success, regardless of the challenges.
