“Richtig Gießen” – the correct way to irrigate
Plants need both a good soil AND a demand-driven water supply to be productive. Wrong irrigation methods can damage soil, crops and further unnecessarily waste valuable 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 Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna. It is directed to both farmers and gardeners. The course provides knowledge about water in the soil and efficient irrigation methods.
