The dynamics of water use in horticultural substrates is a determining factor in the efficacy of an irrigation technique. Substrates are engineered to have different characteristics with individual factors that influence the wettability of each. Reduced substrate wettability can lead to lower substrate water capture, excessive leachate, and poor plant growth. Matching substrate characteristics with irrigation techniques can reduce overall water use and increase system efficiency.
