Fertigation is the process of combining fertilisers and irrigation water to feed plants through their roots.
This method of fertilizing plants is becoming increasingly popular as it provides several benefits over traditional fertilisation methods.
The EZ-Flo fertigation system is one of the most reliable and efficient fertigation systems in the market, and this article will discuss the benefits of using it.
The system is installed in the irrigation system or attached to your hose so that your plant doctor fertilisers can be delivered easily into your garden or lawn..
The system uses an injector to mix the fertiliser with water and deliver it to the plants. This means if you need to add soil wetter, seaweed secrets or any of our other fertilisers to your lawn or garden you can do so automatically through your existing irrigation system or just by watering it with your hose.
The EZ-Flo system is designed to work with any type of irrigation system, including drip irrigation, sprinkler irrigation, and soaker hoses.
One of the most significant benefits of using the EZ-Flo fertigation system is that it provides a precise and accurate way of delivering fertilisers to plants.
With traditional fertilisation methods, it is often challenging to know how much fertiliser to apply, which can result in over-fertilisation or under-fertilisation.
Over-fertilisation can lead to plant burn, while under-fertilisation can result in poor plant growth and yield.
The system eliminates this problem by providing a precise way of delivering the fertiliser to your plants.
It can be programmed to deliver the exact amount of fertiliser that is needed for the specific plants being grown, ensuring that the plants receive the nutrients they need for optimal growth and yield.
Another benefit of the system is that it saves time.
Traditional fertilisation methods often require a significant amount of time and labor to apply the fertiliser.
With the EZ-Flo system, the fertiliser is automatically delivered to the plants as part of the irrigation process or your normal watering routine, eliminating the need for manual fertilisation.
It’s also a more efficient and environmentally friendly method of fertilisation. Traditional fertilisation methods often involve the use of large amounts of fertiliser, which can lead to nutrient runoff wasting some of your fertiliser.
The EZ-Flo system delivers the fertiliser directly to the plants during watering, reducing the amount of fertiliser needed and the potential for nutrient runoff.
Additionally, if you’re using the irrigation method the system can be programmed to deliver the fertiliser at the optimal time for the plants, reducing the risk of over-fertilisation and nutrient waste.
The system is easy to install and requires minimal maintenance, reducing the overall cost of fertilisation and it’s perfect for a wide range of gardens and lawns considering it can be attached to your garden hose.
As you can see there are huge benefits in using EZ-Flo to deliver your fertiliser, we’ve listed the 5 main ones below:
One of the most significant advantages of using fertigation over traditional fertilisation methods is increased nutrient efficiency.
Fertigation enables you to apply nutrients more accurately, and with better control, which reduces the amount of fertiliser that is wasted.
Traditional fertilisation methods often result in over-application of fertilisers, leading to nutrient loss due to runoff or leaching.
Fertigation can increase nutrient uptake by up to 90%, compared to traditional fertilisation methods, which can leads to bigger fruit and veggies, happier healthier plants and a lush green lawn.
Fertigation allows for the precise application of nutrients, which can help to optimize plant growth.
The timing of the fertilisation application can be adjusted when using the irrigation system to meet the needs of the plant at different stages of growth, ensuring that the plant has access to the nutrients it needs when it needs them.
Using a fertigation system can also reduce the amount of time you need to spend spreading your Seaweed Secrets or your Activ8EXTRA...
Traditional fertilisation methods require time and effort to apply fertilisers. Fertigation eliminates the need for manual application, allowing you to automate the process by fertilising when watering your plants.
Fertigation can reduce soil erosion and improve soil quality, as the precise application of nutrients can promote healthy soil microbial activity.
Finally, fertigation offers increased flexibility.
It can be customized to meet the specific needs of different plants and soil types.
You can adjust the application rates and timings to meet the changing needs of your plants as they grow.
The systems can be adjusted to accommodate changes in weather and other environmental factors, allowing for more flexibility in your fertilisation schedule.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the EZ-Flo fertigation system also helps to improve soil health.
When plants are fertilised using traditional methods, the fertiliser can often become concentrated in specific areas, leading to imbalances in soil nutrients.
The EZ-Flo system delivers the fertiliser evenly throughout the soil, ensuring that all plants receive the nutrients they need.
This helps to improve soil health and reduce the risk of soil nutrient imbalances.
Furthermore, the EZ-Flo fertigation system can help to reduce the risk of disease and pest infestations.
When plants are well-fertilised, they are better equipped to fight off diseases and pests.
It can be programmed to deliver specific nutrients that can help plants to resist certain diseases and pests, further reducing the risk of infestations.
It provides a precise and accurate way of delivering fertilisers to plants, saves time, is environmentally friendly, cost-effective, versatile, user-friendly, and helps to improve soil health while reducing the risk of disease and pest infestations.
With these benefits, it is no wonder that the EZ-Flo system is becoming increasingly popular among gardeners and lawn fanatics...
When considering implementing the EZ-Flo fertigation system, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First, it is important to choose the right fertiliser for the specific crops being grown.
Different crops require different nutrients, and it is essential to select a fertiliser that will provide the necessary nutrients for optimal growth and yield.
