Irrigation mat provides solution for water shortagesWhilst Europe has been basking under record temperatures, water management techniques are under intense scrutiny. For nurseries and growers across this continent, the issues are acute. In the U.K., hosepipe bans are imminent for the consumer and how to save water is a major challenge for the horticultural trade.
In respect of plants and trees that have already been potted, a solution to this issue can be provided at source. The FrizDisc weed suppression mat is a foamed plate which also provides an efficient method of irrigation.
30% saving on water
The FrizDisc prevents evaporation from the surface of the pot and can reduce watering volumes by 30%. In a recent example, a nursery who had previously lost plants through poor irrigation techniques, used this product during a specific growing period and reported a high percent success rate.
The application of FrizDisc whilst potting also ensures that the root system is not distorted. The product also enhances plant stability, improves thermal insulation and provides shading.
