“Integrated solutions for irrigation, recirculation and purification”
Horticulture and water are inseparable. But just as no plant can do without water for a day, no grower can do without the automated systems that adjust the amount of water and fertilizers applied in perfect proportion to the needs of the crop. However, good-quality water for irrigation and fertilizers is becoming ever harder to come by. And as a result of globalization and upsizing, it is increasingly becoming a challenge to ensure that water and fertilizers are dosed accurately, efficiently and sustainably.
Ridder has developed a complete range of water management solutions in order to meet these challenges. Thanks to these systems, you can provide precisely the right amount of irrigation water and fertilizers, and save on labour costs. And by using our smart water treatment systems, not only can you use water and fertilizers more efficiently, you can also help to reduce the environmental burden on our planet and reuse water in a smart way. Ridder’s water treatment systems can bring responsible, efficient water management to your greenhouse.

Manual watering is practically a thing of the past in modern horticulture. This is a logical consequence of economies of scale: manual irrigation is not only highly labour-intensive but it also leads to suboptimum production, high water consumption and the waste of valuable fertilizers. By automating the application of water (irrigation) and the dosing and mixing of fertilizers (fertigation), it is much easier to ensure that your crops receive the nutrients they need. Ridder provides flexible and controllable fertigation and irrigation systems that suit every scale, level of knowledge and cultivation technique.Learn more about fertigation
With our practical range of FertiMiX mixing tank fertigation units, you can ensure that every drop of water and fertilizer you apply meets the needs of your crop using automated fertigation. It enables growers of every type of crop, in every location and at every scale to reduce their consumption of water and fertilizers and to increase the efficiency of their operation.
Some growers prefer to use labour-saving liquid fertilizers; this enables them to prepare exactly the right blend of nutrients for their crop. Nevertheless, blending liquid fertilizers by hand is still a time-consuming process and does not fully eliminate the risk of dosing errors. With the FertiFill from Ridder, fertilizer tanks are refilled easily and fully automatically using exactly the right amounts of fertilizers.
Ridder ProDrain was developed to provide insight into the water absorption, evaporation and growth of the crop. ProDrain offers 24/7 insight into important cultivation parameters, such as water absorption, evaporation, growth and the saturation point of the mat and drain.
The power of growing in a greenhouse and on substrate lies in the ability to recirculate and reuse drain water. However, before the water can be reused, it must be properly disinfected and purified of the harmful pathogens that can be present in the water in the form of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Ridder's innovative water disinfection systems make it possible to recirculate clean, high-quality water in an efficient manner and ensure that growers can reuse their water without any risks or loss of production.Learn more about recirculation
In closed recirculation systems, considerable savings can be made on water and fertilizers. The Ridder Vitalite ensures growers that they can reuse their drain water safely. The VitaLite unit treats drain water, completely eliminating harmful pathogens that would otherwise be recirculated, with the potential to infect the crop and adversely affect yields. VitaLite units are available in configurations that match the needs of the end user perfectly.
Responsible growing means taking account of the consumption of water, fertilizers and other substances in your business. In addition to automated fertigation, irrigation and disinfection systems, it is also important to treat any waste water properly before it is discharged. Ridder, together with horticultural entrepreneurs and regulators, has developed a number of smart, environmentally friendly water purification systems which mean that growers are no longer forced to release harmful substances and fertilizers into the environment.Learn more about purification
The CleanLite is an environmentally friendly solution that helps to minimize the ecological footprint of horticulture. The unit treats residual waste water with a balanced combination of UV radiation and hydrogen peroxide. This neutralizes all harmful residues of fertilizers and plant protection products, enabling the water to be safely discharged into surface water.
Ridder NoNa+ provides a solution to reduce sodium levels in drain water; it’s the industry’s first water treatment unit that enables sodium to be removed selectively and allows growers to reap the benefits of recirculation without having to worry about unsafe high sodium levels in their irrigation water or the loss of expensive fertilizers.
