Water is a crucial element in horticulture but with decreasing quantity and quality of water horticulture as an industry needs to find a reliable alternative to mains water.
Climate change & increased demand threatens to reduce the availability of mains water supply for horticultural production.
Whether irrigating fruit, vegetables & flowers in fields or nurseries & other controlled environments, horticulture has high water requirements. Water quality is essential in horticulture as the produce will be consumed and if the water isn’t treated effectively, water-borne pathogens on produce eaten raw can cause diseases such as typhoid and cholera.
Reference a study from Cranfield University:
“During times of drought, irrigated production is last in line when it comes to water allocation. Other users – domestic, industrial, and the environment – are all given preference. With climate change the current situation will get worse; hotter, drier summers will reduce water availability and will lead to an increase in water demand.”
