Research in controlled environments: a versatile, inexpensive system for automatic irrigation of plants grown in pots



Research in controlled environments: a versatile, inexpensive system for automatic irrigation of plants grown in pots



Laboratory Practice 31(8): 728-732



An automatic irrigation system is described which exploits the reliability of solid state control devices and is constructed from readily-available, durable materials. It occupies only a nominal area and volume of plant growing space. It can be programmed to deliver precise and uniform volumes of irrigating solution(s) to each of several hundred pot-grown plants on as many as 6 occasions within any 24-h period.
