Project Information


Note to reader, attached is complete final report for FNE00-316

This system has done as we had hoped it would, saving time and fertilizer and water and the fact that it worked is driving us to install more for next year, and expand its use into the pack watering area. The system would work best on cement floor, but simple adjustment with pieces of wood is easy to do for gravel floors. This system works especially well for the new wave petunias which take a lot of water and dry out often. Fertilizer much be maintained however so that clear water is not entirely used all the time to prevent yellowing of the plant.
