In forest nurseries, watering is vital during all stages of production, such as seedlings, young plants and trees whether in the ground or in containers. Optimal humidity of the soil is a pre-condition for growing strong and well rooted seedlings and young plants. Nurseries should set up a good irrigation system from the start of their operations to avoid the risk of potentially serious losses caused by droughts. The use of atresn adequate system is the only way to ensure proper plant development during an entire season.
Each developmental phase requires a different type of emitter. Young plants in Dünemann gutters needs sprinklers with extra small drops to avoid damaging the leaves during irrigation. Larger trees in school nurseries need sprinklers with wider ranges (10m - 25m). Seedlings, which are very sensitive to atmospheric conditions, are usually grown in foil tunnels and irrigated with hanging mini sprinklers.
