WHAT IS FERTIGATION?
Fertigation is the injection of nutrients into an irrigation system.
Using the batch (or dilute tank) method with a single 200 or 350 gallon mixing tank, the fully automated Rhythm Batch Series AFS was designed to prepare, stabilize, and deliver the user defined recipes to specified feeding zones.
Loaded with features commercial cultivators specifically look for in an automated fertigation system, Rhythm is easy to use yet remarkably sophisticated.
Accurate delivery for consistent quality.
BATCH VS. INLINE
Many solutions available today do not meet the needs of today's cannabis cultivator, forcing growers to make unnecessary compromises with their chosen methods and utilizing much fewer nutrient inputs which greatly limits the flexibility and capabilities of an automated fertigation system.
The batch method of recipe prep and delivery has long been acknowledged as the simplest, safest, and most accurate means to feed plants. However, the argument has always been made that it requires a large number of day storage tanks for each different recipe and more costly components.
The Rhythm Batch Series AFS requires none of this.
Because this batch method isolates the mixing/preparation of each recipe from the delivery process, any possible issues with each feed can be identified and alerted before the mix leaves the machine, preventing possible oversights or human error.
The batch method allows us to deliver each recipe at any required flow rate. This means that one machine can feed the same or different recipes to differently sized rooms/zones with no human interaction required.
Engineered for a grower's needs.
AUTOMATION, PROTECTION, & CONTROL
Our team spent a combined 30+ years working for the world’s largest manufacturers in industrial automation and assisting in the development of machines in virtually every major global industry. Our experience has given us insight into which technology works best for your needs.
Traditional low margins in the agricultural industry filled the market with low-end consumer grade solutions designed to keep cost out. Rhythm, with cannabis as our sole focus, took an industrial approach so our machines are designed and built to last.
ELIMINATE DOWNTIME AND KEEP GROWING
Plants depend on the elements to keep them going. One misstep in detail can keep them from achieving their greatest potential. Because Rhythm understands this, we created redundancies to prevent any missteps on our end.
The two pumps on board will alternate from day-to-day, limiting the amount of stress/hours on a single pump. If one of your EC/pH meters falls out of calibration, there is another to ensure reliability. 14 nutrient injection pumps allow for redundant nutrient locations using most nutrient lines – meaning your higher dosed nutrients can be placed at multiple locations on the machine.
Redundant practices will help to prolong the life of your system.
