Specialists of the farm “Tebigy Ekin” began to irrigate potato fields with the help of sprinkler systems.
For this purpose, a sprinkler system was purchased by the Turkish company “Apdent”. It is designed for watering 7 hectares of land in one working shift. 45 sprinklers of the installation can spray 1-1. 2 tons of water per hour at a distance of 12 meters. As explained by the specialists of the farm, this method of irrigation allows you to significantly save water resources. It also prevents soil hardening, which creates favorable conditions for root crop growth.
In February this year, the farm planted 300 hectares of land with potatoes. All fields have received good seedlings. It is planned to get 20 centners of crop from each hectare.
