“Richtig Gießen” – the correct way to irrigate

Plants need both a good soil AND a demand-driven water supply to be productive. Wrong irrigation can damage soil and crops and, furthermore, unnecessarily waste water- and energy resources.

In this context the advanced training course “Richtig Gießen” was developed by the experienced irrigation specialist Stefan Glaser in collaboration with the University of Natural Resources and Applied Sciences, Vienna. It is directed both at farmers and gardeners. The course provides knowledge about water in the soil and efficient irrigation methods.
