What is the use of water softener in farms and its advantages?
Water is the elixir of life on all farms. In nature, water does not exist as pure H2O. It is difficult to provide the best water for agriculture from canals and rivers. Nearly 85% of the population has fountains or well water for agriculture. Other substances are still dissolved in it, known as mineral salts.
Healthy and balanced water needs mineral salts to sustain life. However, it is the proportion of these mineral salts that makes water "hard" or "soft". Basically, water is classified as hard when it is high in minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Hard water often contains large amounts of iron, manganese, sodium, and other soluble compounds such as bicarbonates and sulphates.
Hard water problem
Due to the large amount of minerals in the water, water canal, drip irrigation lines, and sprinkler nozzles can become clogged over time, making it impossible to provide a stable water supply to all plants. Hard TDS water also burns leaf tips, slows plant growth, impairs crop yields compared to normal hydroponic cultivation, and damages soil structures. Hard water from a borehole (well) usually has a very high surface tension. This water is only absorbed by the stems and cell structures of plants. Hard water makes it difficult for plants to take in. It is not well absorbed, resulting in slow plant growth.
With Netsol water softener, the surface tension of the water is significantly reduced. This allowswater and minerals to be easily absorbed by the plant, supports water and minerals, provide nutrients, which accelerates plant growth and increases total yields.
Netsol water softener changes the chemical structure of hard water. This breaks the molecule into new forms. By simply changing the molecular structure of the mineral, calcium, iron, and other, minerals are created in pure form to stay in the water, but do not deposit on the walls of pipes, accessories, and equipment’s.
These silent minerals are very much important for crop and human. The water coming from Netsol water softener never forms a crusty layer of salt or iron on the ground, these all minerals are more easily absorbed into the ground and the crops, which gives both a healthier environment to grow crops and increases the yield.
Water is the life and blood for farming. Make available best water for farming is difficult that means direct from canal or river. For every placeit’s not possible. About 85% of the population uses drilled or well water for agriculture.
Accumulation of scale around water motor lines, drip irrigation lines, and sprinkler nozzles are due to calcium accumulation. This means that not all plants are evenly watered. High TDS water burns leaves in agriculture, reducing plant growth as compared to normal water agriculture.
Benefits of Water softener in farms
