Australian farmers contribute $155 billion dollars a year to our national economy. It’s an impressive achievement for the driest continent on earth.
Low and unreliable rainfall can make broad-acre production challenging for our agricultural industry, and it’s why efficient water management is crucial.
The wrong irrigation system can lead to over watering, losses caused by seepage and evaporation, decreased production, and unnecessary labour.
When considering ways to save water and increase profitability, there are a number of irrigation system designs to consider.
Centre Pivots or Lateral Moves
Overhead irrigation is one of the most effective ways to achieve greater water efficiencies.
It has the versatility to provide precision application of water, fertiliser, chemicals and herbicides all within a single piece of machinery.
It is also easy to install, maintain and operate, even in rough terrain.
Benefits of converting to linear or pivot irrigation include:
- Improved water efficiency
- Reduced labour costs
- Reduced energy costs
- Consistent yields
- Maximised field potential
- Easily movable from field to field
- Remote monitoring and operation
