Irrigation water disinfection faces 3 main challenges:
Few chemicals can be used safely & economically
The technical nature of irrigation systems
Water volume (very high/very low)
Because calhypo is the only pH-stable, non-phytotoxic chlorine disinfectant that is also residue-free. It is also documented to promote plant health by reinforcing the outer cell walls of foliage and root systems.
High volume irrigation/fertigation (Reservoir Based)
Fertigation requires a disinfection method known as ‘chloramination’ However, chloramination requires strict control over dosing levels. Elevated levels of chloramines are phytotoxic and harmful to root and foliar systems
