Having water available and using the available water thoughtfully is becoming an increasing priority for farmers and horticulturalists. This was evident from the longer drought periods in 2017, 2018 and 2019, where the use of rainwater and groundwater for agricultural purposes was no longer self-evident.
In the 'Irrigation 2.0' project, we therefore want to familiarize growers with reasoned irrigation in terms of which plots have priority to irrigate and how much water is needed for this. In addition, in this project we investigate the feasibility of using different alternative water sources for agricultural purposes. This specifically focuses on purified waste water from the deep-frozen vegetable and potato processing sectors and the purified urban waste water from Aquafin.
