Publishing the Fertigation Bible

The Fertigation Bible has been prepared to provide useful practical information to the horticultural sector of the diverse technologies available for all aspects of fertigation within the EU. The various stage of the “fertigation process” . The Fertigation Bible contains descriptions of the technologies related to these stages.
Each technology is described in terms of:

Purpose/aim of the technology
Regions, crops and cropping systems where it is used
Working principle of operation
Operational conditions
Cost data
Benefits for the grower – advantages and disadvantages
Technological, socio-economic and regulatory bottlenecks and limitations
Techniques resulting from this technology
Supporting systems required
Development, i.e. if it is in a research or development stage, or has been commercialised
Who provides the technology
A total of 125 such technology descriptions are provided.

Considerable effort was made to ensure that the Fertigation Bible is as comprehensive as possible. Various members of the FERTINNOWA project, from 23 organisations from 10 countries, have worked on this document to describe the most commonly-used and promising technologies that are commercially available or are expected to be so in the near future.

While much effort was made to include all relevant technologies, it is possible that some relevant technologies have not been included. Also, given the size of the European Union, the information on prices is to inform of the likely price range. Similarly, with suppliers, the information is usually limited to one to several different regions of the contributing author/s. We have tried to make the description of each technology as complete as possible, but in the context of the EU, we accept that there will be some gaps.
