What to consider when planning a new irrigation system

Irrigation Considerations

Crucial to the success of many farms, having the right irrigation system in place can help maximise production and ensure you make the most of your water. It goes without saying that the right system should be designed in a way that allows it to meet your current and future requirements. So, with that in mind, here are some key considerations when thinking about the right approach to your farm.


Investing in the right system is critical to ensure it's the best fit for your farm, not only now but for the foreseeable future. It involves an analysis of your current system’s performance or an in-depth planning and design process for a new one. And it considers everything from the initial set up value of materials and the amount of labour required to the long-term costs necessary to run, service, and maintain your system.


Whether you farm the hills or the plains, using your water best minimises wastage and energy costs. It’s something that farmers don’t always think about, but with new technologies available, we’re able to create efficiencies that minimise time and labour costs while providing control and visibility across your operation. The result? Your system works seamlessly with your environment year-round, providing the coverage you need while automated components let you save time and get more done.


Installing a new system that’s fit for purpose is one thing, but ensuring it’s durable and easy to service is another. The right system optimises performance but if it’s too complicated or difficult to repair your investment can be worthless after a costly breakdown.
