BioSafe Systems’ Nursery Chemigation Program
Chemical irrigation, or “chemigation,” is a method by which a treatment product, usually a fungicide or insecticide, is placed into an irrigation source for conveyance to the crop. Chemigation can occur through many types of irrigation systems; drip, overhead, mist and boom, to name a few. This process usually involves an injection device that doses the treatment product at various predetermined levels as the water flows through the system.
For nursery growers who suffer frequently with foliar pathogens, chemigation is a safe and cost-effective treatment method. By applying solutions through an irrigation system, you’re automating part of your IPM program. This results in decreased labor cost and less potential for mistakes during mixing/loading and application.
