Diffuser Advantages

Tree, Vegetable and Container/Pot Diffusers

What makes the Buried Diffuser Unique?

  1. Substantial water saving – Use of only 30% of the water amount used by drip irrigation to produce the same weight of crop because water losses due to evaporation, deep percolation and runoff are minimised
  2. An important reduction of the number of irrigations- This is a result of water saving which prolongs the duration between two irrigations. This was confirmed by the comparison of irrigation of ornamental plants in containers using surface irrigation and Buried Diffusers.
  3.  Increase crop productivity and irrigation water efficiency – Water and nutrients delivered directly to the root zone, promote healthy plant growth and reduce plant stress. For the same irrigation water amount the diffuser produces 4 times more than the drip irrigation.
  4.  Healthier, better quality crops- soil and foliage are kept dry, reducing fungal diseases caused by surface or overhead irrigation. As a result, eliminates fruit and vegetable spotting.
  5. Important reduction of the air pollution resulting from the use (for irrigation of the recreation and green areas) of treated wastewater.
  6. Reduction of water vapour – in the atmosphere inside the greenhouses. This contributes in reducing the development of diseases. This low rate of water vapour inside the greenhouses facilitates the movement of pollen and increases the rate of flowers producing fruits
  7. Important reduction of:
  • Labour for the maintenance of soil: pulling out weeds, irrigation frequency, mulching actions, etc.
  • Fertilizers amounts, because there is less degradation of the fertilizers, and less loss by leaching. This reduces the pollution of the ground water by the leaching chemical components.
  • Herbicides and pesticides because there are no weeds in the irrigation by buried diffuser (for vegetable fields and trees plantations). This is a great contribution in the protection of the environment.
  •  Air pollution resulting from the use of treated waste water (for irrigation of the recreation and green areas).
