WATER SAVINGS vs. DRIP
ACCELERATING REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
33% of the world’s arable land has been lost over the last 40 years due to erosion or pollution. To feed the 10B citizens of earth by 2050 while reducing the carbon impact of agriculture, RDI will radically change how we produce food and maximize our use of water. RDI GrowStream™ provides unique solutions for soil management to help drive the adoption of regenerative farming practices.
ORGANIC ROMAINE LETTUCE TRIAL
MONTEREY COUNTY, CALIFORNIA USA
RDI conducted a trial with a commercial lettuce grower in Monterey County, CA to produce organic romaine hearts.
Grower established transplants with sprinkler applications and then switched to drip irrigation. RDI was able to show 29% water savings, and does not require sprinkler applications to establish
plants. Grower also applied two equal applications of organic fertilizer as standard practice in Control Group 2 (CG2). RDI and
another control group (CG1) received only the first application
which was done preplant.
With less water and half the fertilizer, RDI plants grew larger and produced a higher quality yield than both control groups.
