Greenhouse irrigation

In the world of controlled cultivation, irrigation stands as the vital lifeline that fuels the growth and prosperity of plants within the greenhouse. This page delves into the profound significance of implementing efficient irrigation techniques in these controlled environments. It addresses the unique challenges that arise from maintaining optimal moisture levels amidst such precision, and further explores the diverse range of irrigation methods.

Methods of irrigation: tailored techniques

  • Drip irrigation

    Drip irrigation

    This precision-driven method supplies water directly to a plant’s root zone. This targeted approach minimizes water wastage, fosters nutrient absorption, and curtails the risk of disease by keeping foliage

  • Sprinkler irrigation

    Sprinkler irrigation

    Like natural rainfall, sprinkler irrigation showers plants from above. While beneficial, uneven water distribution can be a concern.  Particularly suited for larger setups, this method aids in maintaining greenhouse humidity levels.

  • Flood systems

    Flood systems

    Flood or ebb-and-flow systems ensure even, consistent moisture distribution. However, vigilance is crucial to prevent over watering. These systems offer advantages such as uniformity and suitability for specific crops.

  • Capillary mats

    Capillary mats

    Wicking water from reservoirs using capillary mats provides a steady stream of moisture. Suitable for smaller-scale greenhouses, these mats contribute to consistent hydration for plants.

Implementing advanced irrigation strategies

Rely on the Munters Green Climate Controller to help you implement various advanced irrigation strategies, such as:


  • Precision irrigation uses highly accurate sensors to monitor the moisture levels in the root zone and adjust the irrigation schedule accordingly. This helps ensure that plants get the right amount of water without overwatering.
  • Variable rate irrigation adjusts the irrigation rate based on the requirements of the plants. For example, plants in the vegetative stage may need more water than those in the reproductive stage.
  • Drought response automatically adjusts the irrigation schedule in response to drought conditions, conserving water and reducing plant stress during periods of drought.


Elevate greenhouse irrigation with digital controllers

Closely monitor and adjust the nutrients and acidity levels in the water that your plants receive using digital controllers. Transform your irrigation practices by scheduling plant watering based on time or external factors. Digital control also helps efficiently cool your greenhouse by responding to real-time temperature and humidity data, safeguarding your crops and enhancing growth.

Whether in the open field or within a greenhouse, digital controllers provide adaptable solutions to optimize your irrigation practices to ensure your plants thrive. User-friendly interfaces support multiple languages for global accessibility.

Advantages of combining irrigation and fertilization

Fertilization is the catalyst that promotes a transformative relationship between water and nutrients. By integrating nutrient solutions with irrigation, plants receive the essential moisture they crave and a tailored blend of nutrients directly at their root zones. This synergistic approach enhances nutrient absorption, promoting robust growth and health.

Irrigation combined with fertilizer enhances growth while maximizing resource efficiency. This dynamic duo streamlines labor, conserves water, and fine-tunes nutrient delivery.

Munters Green Climate Controller for precision irrigation

Control a wide range of irrigation systems, including drip irrigation, hydroponics and nutrient film technique (NFT) systems, with the Munters Green Climate Controller. It monitors the greenhouse environment and soil or root zone moisture levels in the using sensors. It also predicts future growing conditions using weather data. Managing greenhouse irrigation systems with the controller and these datasets optimizes moisture levels, enhancing plant growth.

One of the key features of the Munters Green Climate Controller is its ability to coordinate irrigation with other greenhouse systems, such as ventilation and cooling. Coordinating irrigation this way helps ensure that plants always receive the right amount of water, even when environmental conditions change.
