MORE SUGARCANE. EVERY SEASON

In pursuit of increased profitability, sugarcane farmers are always after higher yields, higher sucrose content, extended ratoon life and lower operational costs.

That's why they've been switching to drip irrigation. 

The Challenge for Sugarcane Farmers

There is a lot that you cannot control in a sugarcane field, but if you have a way to control every drop of water and dose of nutrients delivered to the plants – and you can apply both with precise timing – you’ll be able to produce higher and more uniform yields while increasing sucrose content and extending the life of the plantation.

How Precision Irrigation Helps

Subsurface drip irrigation goes beneath the soil to deliver water and nutrients straight to the root zone of each plant. This allows uniform delivery of water and nutrients directly to the plant - on demand.

In addition to increasing annual yields, having the crop grow with perfect conditions of water and nutrients significantly extends ratoon life, giving you an average of eight to ten ratoons, and reaching as many as fifteen ratoons with high productivity.

Subsurface drip irrigation fits onto any plot, and can be applied on all topographies, field sizes and soil types. You can maintain optimal soil moisture and nutrient levels, whatever your conditions.

If you invest in digital controls for your system, you’ll be able to monitor, optimise and irrigate remotely, gaining data about every aspect of the field. Wherever you are, you can ensure high, top-quality yields every season, with less labour cost, resulting in bigger profits.
