REDUCTION IN ENERGY REQUIREMENTS
PROMOTES CROP DIVERSITY AND SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES CROP YIELDS
WATER SAVINGS vs. DRIP
“The most important advance in irrigation since
the 1960’s” and on the right side “GrowStream is the world’s only patented
irrigation system that allows plants to self-regulate their own water delivery.”
We are RDI – the creators of the GrowthStream system. RDI
GrowStream™ is the world’s only irrigation & fertigation system that uses organic chemistry to allow each and every plant to self-regulate its own water and nutrient delivery. Holding over 40 patent globally Growstream’s microporous tube responds directly to root signals, releasing water and nutrients at a variable flow rate to precisely meet each plant’s individual needs.
RDI’s mission is to increase crop production to meet increasing global needs and creating green livable cities while insuring water conservation and sustainability for the planet.
All plants release a broad range of natural chemical signals into the rhizosphere (root zone). One of the most important functions of these root exudates is the uptake of water and nutrients.
Beneath the surface, the life of plants’ is very dynamic. Plants release root exudates in response to their changing environment. Temperature, wind, rain… and through
different stages of growth and development- plants are constantly adapting and growing.
RDI GrowStream™ uses a patented combination of hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials. RDI GrowStream™ has billions of smart micropores that interact and respond to root signals, releasing water and nutrients as the plant needs
it. When the plant is satisfied, it stops emitting these root signals, and the GrowStream™ micropores stop releasing water.
RDI GrowStream™ is a precision irrigation system, which delivers directly in the root zone to promote healthier plants that grow to their maximum potential, achieving higher yields while minimizing disease and pest infestation.
