Improve your almond crops! Consistently hit yield targets, and plan with confidence.
Is there any way to protect my irrigation equipment from agro machinery?
Yes! Using sub-surface drip irrigation (SDI) eliminates physical damage to the irrigation system, which is very important for highly mechanised crops like almonds. In addition, SDI allows growers to irrigate without obstructing field access for spraying or harvest crews or equipment.
How can I reduce dust at harvest?
Using micro-sprinklers as a choice of emitter for your precision irrigation solution will allow you to wet the surface and reduce dust and prevent environmental hazards.
Is it important to have drippers between the trees?
Yes! The almond root-zone is found all along the line, so it’s important to wet the entire length of the planting row.
Why should I choose drip over other irrigation methods?
Another common irrigation method for growing almonds is micro-sprinklers. While using drip irrigation can save up to 25% of the water compared to micro-sprinklers, it is also the most efficient way to apply fertilisers, keep the surface dry & preventing unwanted weed growth. Nevertheless, if water-saving is not in top priority, micro- sprinklers can be a good solution as a precision irrigation method.
