What Opportunities are Available for Fertigation Control System Suppliers?

The trend of "customization" has had an impact on the growth of the fertigation control system market in recent years. Controlled environment agriculture (CEA), vertical farming, indoor urbanized farming, and hydroponic growing methods have all seen increased acceptance, providing market participants with more opportunity to supply customized services and solutions.

What are the Challenges Restricting Fertigation Control Systems Adoption?

The initial installation cost associated with the fertigation control systems is one of the prominent challenges to market growth. Also, experts are required for the installation and for efficient operation of the system.

Therefore, technical support should be pursued in order to achieve desired results whenever required. Moreover, fertilizers in tanks frequently cause corrosion in metal components of the system. This problem can be abolished with the use of corrosion resistant materials, especially in fertilizer tanks and other equipment that comes into contact with fertilizer.

What Factors Will Drive Sales of Fertigation Control Systems?

Fertigation control systems have a number of advantages, including the ability to adjust nutrient requirements of crops in order to maximise their growth. For instance, numerous players are selling fertigation control systems that can regulate chemical dosing to maintain proper pH values and other soil factors that are essential for plant growth.

Dosing of nutrients in irrigation water to maintain a diluted nutrient solution is also possible with the fertigation control systems. fertigation control systems are a cost-effective option reducing requirements of labour, nutrient volume, and dosing.
