Irrigation

Managing Crop Output and Balancing Resources

Overview - With so much riding on irrigation, farmers are naturally looking for systems that not only help them use energy and water resources efficiently to maximize their crop output, but also deliver consistently optimized irrigation levels to crops, and are automated and simple to operate. Farmers must plan and implement practices that address these resource concerns — including more efficient irrigation systems.

Food producers' irrigation concerns include:

  • Energy consumption
  • Water consumption
  • Environmental impacts
  • Adjusting irrigation to weather changes
  • Irrigation system complexity

Products that support irrigation should be:

  • Energy efficient
  • Accurate
  • Reliable
  • Flexible to adjust irrigation easily
  • Simple and cost-effective to operate
