ROOT DEVELOPMENT FROM PORTUGAL

Responsive Drip development root demand

The team at RDI IBERIA in Portugal installed GrowStream™ and planted lettuce (alongside a glass pane) to demonstrate the unique ways roots develop and interact with our plant-responsive system. 

Roots grow to, around, and along GrowStream™ as they dynamically take water and nutrients from the tubing- all without root intrusion.  No other irrigation system can deliver such precision: plant-by-plant, minute-by-minute. 

Both Portugal and Spain are rated at the highest levels of global water stress- RDI IBERIA is engaging all levels of agriculture, municipal, and government agencies to reduce water use with RDI GrowStream™.  Contact us for more information.

MEGADROUGHT IN WESTERN US

RDI battles drought

USA Today has highlighted a recent study that shows a megadrought is emerging in the Western US, and could be the worst in 1,200 years.  See the original article below.

The western US is home to over 70 million people, with vast agricultural production throughout.  California alone produces over a third of the US vegetables and two-thirds of the country’s fruits and nuts.  RDI’s plant-responsive system will help drive sustainability for both cities and growers to become more resilient to droughts.  Contact us to learn more.
