Higher risk for clogging when irrigation water:
pH above 7,5
Calcium content > 60 ppm (equals 1,5 mmol/L or 3,0 meq/L)
Magnesium content > 30 ppm (equals 1,2 mmol/L or 2,4 meq/L)
Bicarbonate content > 150 ppm (equals 2,5 mmol/L or 2,5 meq/L)
It is recommended to make each year a newwater analysis of the irrigation water source.
A uniform irrigation is important for a uniform crop development. A correct irrigation
avoids weak plants which can introduce (root) diseases. To solve problems of
unequal irrigation as a result of clogging, growers generally decide to over-irrigate
(increase the water so each plant gets a minimum). More runoff is resulting in
spillage of water and fertiliser. Hortipray® anticalc prevents clogging and scaling
in the irrigation system, as such preventing losses of water and nutrients.
Hortipray® anticalc:
simple to use
Just replace the standard Hortipray® phosphate fertilisers with
its Hortipray® anticalc version. Both standard Hortipray® MAP and
Hortipray® MKP fertilisers as anticalc versions contain the same amount
of nutrients. No add-ons or changes in the recipe!
