Why You Should Fertigate

If you have an irrigation system, the most cost-effective way of applying fertilizer to your crops is...

THROUGH YOUR IRRIGATION SYSTEM! Nothing else even comes close:

  Ground spreading Fertigation
Fuel cost Fuel for tractor/spreader -- varies widely -- how much do you pay? Electrical power to run a 1 1/2 -hp pump -- typically less than 25 cents per hour of operation
Maintenance costs Periodic oil, repairs, tires, etc (you should be amortizing these costs per hour of operation) Virtually nil -- only winter drainage and storage in cold climates. The FD95 will work for years with almost no attention.
Labor cost What is your time worth? Or - what will you pay someone to spread fertilizer? Let the irrigation water do the work of spreading the fertilizer.
Equipment cost Thousands of dollars for a spreader, tractor, etc. (Sure, you may already have these, but every hour you put on them is an hour you'll eventually pay in replacement costs) $1395.00 + shipping
(plus cost of a chemigation check valve or backflow preventer and tank if you don't already have them)

Other Benefits of Fertigation Include...

  • Better uniformity of application
  • More control over timing of applications
  • Less dependence on weather for timing of applications. For example, you can apply fertilizer at a high rate through the irrigation system with a minimum of water -- just enough to carry the fertilizer to the field -- even when fields are too wet for vehicles
  • Ability to apply fertilizer only as needed by the crop, throughout the growing season ("spoon-feeding")
  • Reduced fertilizer usage resulting from greater control of application rate
  • More flexibility to deal with abrupt weather changes -- you can adjust application rates in a way not possible even with timed-release ground-spread fertilizers
  • Less soil compaction from equipment
  • Less risk of run-off
  • Less risk to personnel
