We used this free time to analyse the data we collected during the past two months in Suriname.
Finally, we came to the same conclusion as expected: a drip-kit system is the best system to use here in Suriname. This means we do not need to change our design made in the Netherlands.
With a drip-kit system a bucket of water is placed at a certain height and connected to a hose. This hose contains holes to bring the water directly to the roots of the plants. This system prevents water loss and is easy to build. So we found a cheap and sustainable solution!
Our goal is to set up lessons about irrigation for students from a local school, leading them to this design. In that way they will be extra enthusiastic for building it in the greenhouse that is placed there.
