Traditional methods of field and land cultivation require expensive soil preparation procedures prior to planting. The environmental impact of sterilization and post-harvest material disposal is mounting--forcing farmers to develop more sustainable forms of agriculture. Traditional methods include: soil conditioning, fumigation, and application of herbicides.
Fields high in clay or rock content require extensive tilling and top soil replacement
Pending ban on the popular fumigant methyl bromide further is forcing farmers to develop alternative methods of soil sterilization.
AgroSystems addresses these issues by eliminating soil conditioning and sterilization altogether. Moreover, AgroSystems generates higher crop yield and increased crop value.
Cost increases in labor, chemicals, energy and materials.
Available technology increases crop harvesting yield and extends farmable periods.
Desire for higher-value crops ie organic fruits and vegetables.
AgroSystems design features & Benefits:
AgroSystems Grow Tube: 1) Grow Tube- uses a continuous UV resistant heavy duty commercial grade plastic good for 3 seasons. Agrosystems tubes are puncture and tear resistant. Pre-installed grow media: 1) Agrosystems houses a sterile compressed coco peat--processed for uniformity, moisture retention and capillarity 2) Media expand during initial irrigation to the dimensions of an ideal planting bed.
Pre-Integrated Drip irrigation lines: 1)AgroSystems employs pre-installed subsurface drip irrigation lines to provide a slow even application of low pressure water to plants at the root zone. 2) This significantly reduces runoff and water lost to evaporation and also prevents standing water or puddling which may contribute to the onset of disease. 3) Drip irrigation also enables farmers to apply a steady flow of nutrients on schedule and in precise calibrated quantities. 4) Eliminates inefficient overhead irrigation
Customizable & Alternating pre-cut planting patterns 1) Allows for optimal spacing to accommodate different crop varieties and their individual spacing requirements 2) Supports multi -configuration planting patterns and pattern rotations between seasons Monitoring equipment (Sold separately) 1) AgroSystems works in conjunction with Decagon EM series monitoring equipment specially calibrated for AgroSystems’ substrate 2) Monitoring equipment will allow farmers to configure an effective irrigation strategy which will ensure sufficient irrigation and prevent over watering and accurate nutrient administration.
