Pasture, Broadacre Cropping & Vegetable Irrigation
Australia’s pasture, broadacre cropping and vegetable based industries are the largest consumers of irrigation water, with over 80% of water used in agriculture, dedicated to irrigating these crops. Unfortunately, irrigation water used in these industries in Australia is generally not applied as efficiently as it could be, with overwatering and losses caused by seepage and evaporation resulting in unnecessary water wastage, decreased production, increased input costs and ultimately reduced farmer profits.
There are several irrigation systems we suggest farmers consider when looking to improve the water efficiency and profitability of their pasture, cropping or vegetable operations, including the installation of centre pivots, lateral moves, pipe and riser systems, poly-reel irrigators, sub-surface drip or fixed sprinklers. Choosing the most appropriate irrigation system for your property is not easy – each has their advantages and disadvantages – and ultimately the decision on which system is best depends on the specific circumstances of your enterprise and the crop type being grown.
Total Eden is the first choice when considering investing in irrigation infrastructure – we specialise in all irrigation systems for pasture, cropping and vegetable based operations, and can assist in deciding which system best suits your specific requirements. We design, supply and install any system anywhere across Australia – no irrigation proposal is too difficult for us to complete.
Given that the Federal and State Governments continues to distribute funding to pasture, cropping and vegetable based irrigators across Australia, there has never been a better time to contact Total Eden to discuss the options available.
