With the mechanization of irrigation, particularly with the development of center pivot sprinkler systems, new application techniques have been developed for fertilizer and chemical solutions. New words describing these application techniques include fertigation, chemigation, fungigation, herbigation, insectigation, and pestigation.

More recently, foliar feeding has been widely used and accepted as an essential part of crop production, especially on horticultural crops. Although not as widespread on agronomic crops, the benefits of foliar feeding have been well documented and increasing efforts have been made to achieve consistent responses.READ MORE
