The recovery of nutrients from slurry is the objective of all sectors involved in the breeding of pigs and cattle.
It is knowed that, the problem is the nutrients contained in the slurry are very dissolved in m3 of water. so it is expensive to transport.
By being able to inject the liquid into sprinkler or drip irrigation systems, the transport costs disappear and we can valorise the nutrients that the slurry has.
Agronomically speaking, another important factor is that we can apply these nutrients when the crop needs during all its cycle, not like until now applying them at the times that we can enter the fields with our tanks.
By being able to inject by drip irrigation we minimize greenhouse gas emissions, and avoid odors at the time of application.
The design of this equipment has been possible thanks to the LIFE ARIMEDA project, where we have watered by sprinkler and dripper for three years achieving the goal of not clogging the systems.
