Improved irrigation scheduling for Costa Berry

Costa Berry Category is committed to sustainable growing and production practices. That is why Costa Berry chose Priva to help to improve their irrigation scheduling of substrate berry crops. With the Priva Moisture Balance Module, every irrigation cycle is fully automatically determined based on three important influences: water evaporation, plant water use, and the water content of the substrate. This precise and timely irrigation improves crop quality, increases fruit production and avoids waste of water and fertilizer.

The Priva Moisture Balance Module enables us to irrigate at specific moisture contents. It removes most of the guesswork for irrigating substrate berries. Substrate conditions can be managed more precisely, and root health is being optimized.
