Irrigation is essential
Optimal conditions for the plants
Irrigation is indispensable in the Great Hungarian Plain. The hot air temperatures of 35 to 40 °C experienced in the summer are very hard on the plants, and that’s before taking account of the dangerous heat from below: the sandy soils in the region can reach temperatures as high as 55 °C!
This makes it tremendously important to cool the ground, which requires a continuous, low-intensity supply of water. If the water is too cold, it puts stress on the plants. The water, which comes from Tisza 15 kilometers away, must therefore be pumped into a giant reservoir to be warmed up before it can be used for irrigation.
To avoid unnecessary risks, the systems are equipped with weather stations and ground sensors. With this Bauer technology, Univer can guarantee optimal conditions for the plants throughout the entire irrigation season.
