Lined water basins as large scale rain water storages

In many European regions, rainwater quality is perfect for irrigation purposes as the electronic conductivity (EC) is close to zero. However, the rain pattern is not optimal for meeting the crop water demand. When larger amounts of water (>1 000 m³) need to be stored, a lined rainwater basin might be an option. “Lined” refers […]

Water storage covers to prevent growth of algae and bacteria

As rainwater contains none to very low concentrations of undesired elements like sodium, iron, chlorine it is an interesting water source for irrigation and fertigation purposes. Due to the discontinuous pattern of precipitation, growers have to provide a water storage to assure an adequate buffer. As costs for water storage vary from € 4-25 /m³ […]

Water silo as a small scale water storage

In many European regions rainwater is a very interesting water source for irrigation. Unfortunately, the rainfall pattern does not optimally fit the water demand pattern of the crop. Therefore, growers have to provide rainwater storage. Although the rainwater itself is free of charge, the rainwater storage systems are costly. Choosing the correct water storage type […]

Subsol Water Storage (SubSol – SWS)

Coastal areas are the most productive and economically dominant regions of the world. Due to the high water demand in these regions,  there is a tremendous pressure on their freshwater resources and ecosystems. This causes problems like seasonal water shortage, saltwater intrusion, and disappearance of wetlands. There is a need for a sophisticated new well […]

WADITO: a tool to dimension rainwater storage for greenhouse crops

In many European regions rainwater is a very interesting water source for irrigation. Unfortunately, rainfall pattern does not optimally fit the water demand pattern of the crop. Therefore, growers have to provide rainwater storage. Although the rainwater itself is free of charge, rainwater storage systems are costly. An appropriate dimensioning of the storage is essential […]
