Plants need water
In a garden plants rely on the rain.
When growing vegetables you cannot count on the rainfall only.
In order not to end in a bad harvest you have to supply water.
Within the greenhouse even more water is needed but here no rain will fall at all.
Using watering-cans to supply water by hand may be helpfull. It is hard work and time consuming.
If you could use a hosepipe would be an improvement, but it requires waterpressure.
Automated watering for greenhouse and garden
So what you need is an irrigation system, especially for mass watering .
You can choose your best way for irrigation by a combination of sprinkling, seeping, dripping or even misting the water.
Why not handled automatically? There are a lot of advantages. For instance:
- you do not have to be there yourself.
- the watering will be carried out at night to reduce evaporation
- plants will grow better because the controller will anticipate to the demands
- reduction of diseases like mould or mildew.
For the greenhouse some added features exist:
- opening ventilation window based on the temperature within the greenhouse
- control for ebb flow system (also called flood and drain)
- control for light compensation by leds
How it works
Electricity is generated using a solar panel. The power will be stored in a battery.
With this power a pump will be activated during the night.
The pumpduration depends on the amount of sun during the day. All this is calculated by the controller.
The water will spout, spurt
, seep or sprinkle while you are sleeping.
So, by producing energy locally the irrigation works even in rural areas.
