Water: the irreplaceable and essential resource

The AQUAMAT® patented system provides a sensible approach to the serious issue of decreasing water supply that affects numerous producers worldwide.   

This capillary irrigation-mat has been specially designed for the cultivation of plants in containers. In comparison to conventional irrigation systems where 80% of the water is quickly drained (or falls between the pots), AQUAMAT® captures the water and stores it inside the mat. It produces beneficial impacts on the natural environment as well as optimizes your overall operational performance.

Facts

  • Canada has 20% of the world’s fresh water supply. Yet even in such a water-rich country, a quarter of Canadian municipalities face water supply shortages.
  • In 2007, the southeastern United States faced one of the worst droughts in its history. Numerous horticultural businesses were unable to survive due to the water restrictions imposed by local governments.
  • Experts predict that global warming will lead to a greater number of extreme heat waves and droughts.
  • According to UNESCO, the agricultural industry is by far the biggest consumer of fresh water.  Decreasing water consumption will most certainly involve initiatives to improve methods of irrigation.
