Efficient Nursery Irrigation System

William Baumgartner, Beasley, Jeffrey S., Bush, Edward W.

This technology is an automatic irrigation management controller for potted nursery plants. The system includes simple sensors and logic units that deliver an appropriate amount of water based on soil water holding capacity. The system automatically shuts off irrigation after the soil becomes moistened to its capacity. Proper irrigation improves plant root and shoot growth and helps reduce the prevalence of diseases. It also reduces the loss of beneficial nutrients into the environment.
