Release Date: 
23/05/2018

This factsheet provides practical recommendations for the efficient irrigation of container-grown hardy nursery stock in order to optimise water use and maintain plant quality in peat-based, peat-reduced and peat-free growing media and to minimise the risk of potential nutrient leaching from crops.

 

This factsheet should be read in conjunction with updated factsheets 'Methods and equipment for matching irrigation supply to demand in container–grown crops' (on which this builds), and 'Measuring and improving the performance of overhead irrigation for container-grown crops.'
