terraplus, a smart subsurface water saving irrigation system ideal for date palms and much more

water saving based on 3 scientific facts

Go to the rootzone

the rootzone

90 % of the total water uptake of the date palm is done by the roots within 1.5 meter around and below the rootball.

water holding capacity

every soil can hold water, soils in this region have a low water holding capacity but the soil of the rootzone will keep 350 liter available for the plant.

exact water requirement

sap flux sensors placed on several heights of the stem provide EXACT information about the water uptake. during the day and through the year.

ancient practices and science merge towards an efficient solution

from porous jars to a woven textile and impregnated tube, low pressure and sub surfacedirectly in the rootzone.
