Murcia develops an experimental European project to apply nutrients from treated wastewater in the production of greenhouse crops (10/06/2013)

The Minister of Agriculture and Water, Antonio Cerdá, today visited the facilities of a tomato greenhouse in Torre Pacheco which is developing the experimental European project IRIS, in order to apply nutrients from treated wastewater in amounts adequate to optimize the agronomic crop production.

The agriculture minister, who was accompanied by the Mayor of Torre Pacheco, Daniel García Madrid, and Cebas director Juan José Alarcón said that these works aim to develop a "model of debugging" to apply in small groups in order to that "reclaimed water can be used with the nutrients and all the security with which they are applied in irrigation, and optimize costs in agriculture."

Cerda said "Murcia is a leader in treatment and continue to investigate this matter," and added that the project "brings together the public and private effort", with the participation of the Bank of cleansing and purifying (Esamur), the Centre for Soil Safe and Applied Biology (Cebas), as well as Spanish and Dutch companies.

The project consists of three parts consisting study the design and operation of a treatment plant wastewater in small flow, which provides reclaimed water without removing nutrient mineral elements.

Further facilities include a head automated fertigation, which regulates irrigation doses and complements crop requirements contained in those minerals necessary for proper fertilization of the crop and a controlled atmosphere gases fail water and nutrients for agricultural production profitable.

The project has a budget of two million euros for a period of three years, and is installed in the sewage-balsicas Roldan, Torre Pacheco.

The greenhouse is in full production of tomato and tracks on different types of growing media, coir and rockwool, and changes in the components of the irrigation water.

The treatment plant is under commissioning and optimization of operating parameters, the plant fully operational fertigation and greenhouse cultivation in full production.
