Optimal soil/substrate humidity can increase yield by 20%
Soil or substrate moisture is quantitative water content relative to dry solid matter (percentage). Optimum moisture content excludes lack or oversupply of moisture of the root zone. Optimal moisture content is determined by upper and lower levels, and depending on the crops can be 40% - 85%
Soil moisture is one of the key factors of fertility. Plants contain about 70-95% of water necessary to keep up subsistence. The upper level of soil moisture for vegetables is 60-70%, for grain crops – 70-80%, for herbs – 80-85%. A higher soil moisture level prevents access of oxygen to the roots and leads to plants’ death. Lower moisture level leads to plants’ weakening and fading : 50-60% - for herbs, 45-50% - for grain crops, 40-45% -for vegetables and technical crops
Plants are able to absorb only the water hold by capillary and molecular forces under the pressure lower than absorbing ability of the plants. Seemed to be moisture soil/substrate can contain water that plants are not able to absorb, and effective moisture can be only after watering for a short period of time
Regulation and control of moisture and watering are the main factors of rational agrotechnics!
To control soil/substrate moisture automatically we designed Sensiroom h
This device provides watering according to a set moisture percentage. This technique is more effective than timer watering or manual watering.. SensiRoom LVL can add water to the tank with solution, as it turns on the pump or electromagnetic valve to add water according to the readings of the liquid level sensor Regular and optimal soil/substrate moistening provides constant availability of nutrient solution and oxygen. It is necessary just to plug in the device (220V), to connect plugs and provide the system with water SensiRoom LVL can add water to the tank with solution, as it turns on the pump or electromagnetic valve to add water according to the readings of the liquid level sensor.
