Water Management for Commercial Growers
We offer turn-key irrigation solutions to provide water management for commercial growers to help manage everything from water quality, humidity control, temperature, and oxygenation to improve nutrient absorption and keep roots thriving and to promote faster plant growth. We feature products by AXEON. AXEON offers an assortment of best-in-class components to help build and manage water purification systems.
Recognizing the significance of water purification, we offer innovative reverse osmosis systems that guarantee a reliable supply of clean and mineral-balanced water. This not only safeguards your crops against potential contaminants but also maintains the integrity of your irrigation infrastructure over the long term.
Our commercial sales team can help you with a variety of irrigation setups such as ebb and flow trays, fertilizer injection (fertigation) systems, reverse osmosis systems, and automation that allows you to control and monitor your irrigation scheduling.
