    Presentation Transcript
    1. Greenhouse & Nursery Irrigation

    2. Greenhouse Irrigation • Woodburn Area nurseries use 4 basic types of greenhouse irrigation systems • Solid-set Sprinklers • Overhead Spray Emitters • Mist Systems • Boom Spray

    3. Greenhouse Irrigation • Solid-set Sprinklers • Used for large volumes of water • Suitable for established plants that can tolerate overhead watering with large droplets

    4. Greenhouse Irrigation • Solid-set Sprinklers • Primarily used for containerized plants 4” and larger • Plants with large leaves or canopies can block water

    5. Greenhouse Irrigation • Microspray Emitters • Great for sensitive plants • Allows for precise watering

    6. Greenhouse Irrigation • Microspray Emitters • Efficient & accurate • Reduces waste • Minimizes weed germination

    7. Greenhouse Irrigation • Mist Systems • Used mostly for cutting & seed propagation • High humidity • Frequent, short waterings

    8. Greenhouse Irrigation • Boom Spray Systems • Large volumes of gentle spray • Precise delivery • Often used on cuttings and annual production

    9. Greenhouse IrrigationBoom Spray Sprinklers

    10. Greenhouse Irrigation • Controllers • Allow growers to schedule irrigation • New technology ties controllers to computers and smartphones

    11. Greenhouse & Nursery Irrigation • Most groundwater needs amending before being used for irrigation • Sand filters take out salts and other particulates • Fertilizer injectors allow for even dosing with irrigation

    12. Nursery Irrigation • Most is done by overhead impact sprinklers • Some microspray is used on sensitive plants or large-canopied trees

    13. Nursery Irrigation

    14. Nursery Irrigation • Large holding ponds are created to reduce the demand on groundwater

    15. Nursery & Greenhouse Irrigation • Many similarities in equipment exist • However, both are managed quite differently based on the needs of the plants & industry
