UNLOCKED CASE STUDY: Chahtech; more crops with less drops

Abstract

Overall description

Main features or highlights

  • The BD enables the injection of water to deep soil layers from water retention structures. During droughts, trees produce normally as a result of the injection in the deep soil layers which could last for three (3) years. It, therefore, exploits water resources during the rainy season and conserves the water through the injection especially for drought seasons.
  • The injection of water to deep soil layers from natural sources.
  • It makes room for anticipated irrigation orchards or forestry
  • plantation and annual crop.
  • The BD is also manufactured in three different types for three
  • different uses.
  • The three different types include;
  • The Tree buried Diffuser is used for the irrigation of all kinds of trees like banana, mango, orange, grape, apple, date palm, etc.

Why is this revolutionary?

  • It encourages great irrigation and saves water
  • It leads to an improved crop productivity
  • The diffuser is energy saving. It works with gravity as well as the
  • conventional water pressure. When using gravity, the irrigation is non-stop during many days because there is no use for expensive pumps and there are no associated maintenance costs.
  • Reduces the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere in the greenhouse
  • Reduces soil salinization
  • Reduces labor for the maintenance of soil
  • Reduces the number of fertilizers to be used
  • Reduces the use of pesticides and herbicides
  • Reduces air pollution
