Precision irrigation feeds the plant, not the soil. That’s a big deal. When you deliver water and nutrients straight to the root zone of the plant, you lower costs. More importantly, you produce higher yields of healthier crops. Wherever you are, whatever your challenges. Scroll down to see three ways precision irrigation changes agriculture for the better.
Farmers around the world are under pressure to optimise water-use efficiency. They’re facing challenges, from drought and leaching, to wastage and lack of access to water reserves. Precision irrigation solves each of those challenges by changing the way you use water – delivering higher yields than you’ve ever seen, with less water.Learn More
Plant nutrition isn’t a matter of quantity – it’s a matter of efficiency. Precision Nutrigation™ delivers nutrients straight to the root zone of each plant, in customised combinations, with perfect timing. You use fertiliser more efficiently and get the best return on inputs, even in cases where soil moisture is balanced, and there's no need for additional irrigation.Learn More
By 2050, the world will need to double its food production. To keep up with demand, farmers will need twice the amount of water and arable land. The availability of both these resources is already in rapid decline. Instead, farmers need a solution that changes the way they operate. A solution that increases efficiency and productivity with the resources available. Precision irrigation is that solution.Learn More
Older drip irrigation methods, with higher delivery rates caused challenges concerning control over the depth of irrigation. This resulted in more frequent and shorter irrigation cycles, of sometimes less than one hour per cycle. The result was oversaturated conditions in the subsoil, and low hydraulic performance of systems due toe filling and draining losses.
Oversaturated conditions result in bad soil aeration and create stressful conditions for the plant roots. Excessive water also leaches beneficial plant nutrients below the active root zone, resulting in less nutrients available to crops and groundwater contamination. Continuous irrigation helps to balance the air-water ratio in the soil and targets water and fertiliser application in the root zone.
