VermisTerra HydroSpiral is a deep root watering apparatus which installs into the ground near the base of the plant. As a mesh tube that is buried into the ground, a drip type irrigation emitter is then fed above the top of the tube. By feeding the irrigation water directly into the top of the HydroSpiral, water is directed down towards the root zone. This method is an efficient way of irrigating crops without wasting a lot of the water due to evaporation and runoff. The mesh of the HydroSpiral also allows for more aeration to the root zone, bolstering the microbial activity and leading to more strong and healthy plants.
Water efficiency is achieved by greatly reducing loss due to evaporation and runoff typical of surface irrigation.
Increase Transplant Survival
Deep root watering can increase a tree’s chances of transplant survival.
Faster Root Establishment
Deep root irrigation helps tree and shrub root systems become established more quickly by providing water, oxygen and nutrients at lower levels in the root zone.
