Water harvesting and recycling in soft fruit

A very high proportion of UK soft fruit growers produce their crops in soil-less substrates allowing 'run-off' and excess irrigation water to be harvested, treated and recycled. This reduces the quantities of water being used which not only reduces costs but conserves water. This guide provides useful case studies on the various processes currently used in the fruit and wider horticultural industry and offers growers information on the range of systems available for:

  • Collecting water
  • Assessing and decontaminating water
  • Recycling water
