Guidelines for Greenhouse Water Management

Greenhouse hydroponic cultivation already uses water more efficiently than field based production systems. However large amounts of water and fertilizers are lost in free draining hydroponic systems. Water use efficiency can be improved by collecting drain water and reapplying it to the crop. In this way, greenhouse growers can further improve their water use efficiency and consequently become more sustainable producers.

What will you find in this guide?

This guide provides greenhouse owners and managers an overview of practical tips for the application and recycling of water and nutrients in the greenhouse.
