Increase Corn/Maize Crop Yield and Reduce Production Costs with Drip Irrigation

There are almost as many new corn varieties as there are stars in the sky. Each new variety brings high yield potential, but all varieties require water and nutrition to realize this potential. To achieve the potential of your corn crop, you need to be able to provide it with the right amount of water and fertilizer, especially during peak demand. Water stress to your corn crop can cause up to 8% permanent yield loss per day.

Drip irrigation offers unique advantages to increase your yield compared to pivot irrigation, while also being significantly less expensive to operate over the long term. It allows you to save money on energy, water and fertilizer costs due to efficient delivery of water and nutrients directly through the drip irrigation system with lower pressures, while lowering your overall long term running costs with easier maintenance.
