With the country experiencing some of the worst drought conditions in history, irrigating your crops is vital to ensuring a healthy and successful crop. Choosing the right irrigation system that fits your needs and budget can seem confusing and frustrating.
Here are two irrigation systems farmers are finding success with.
1. Drip Irrigation: Drip irrigation systems are perfect for high value vegetable and orchard crops. They make efficient use of water and can also be used with fertilizer injection systems to apply fertilizer along with water directly to the root zone. Since drip irrigation systems are typically below ground, farmers can still perform other task on the farm such as spraying and cultivating while the irrigation system is running.
2. Traveling Gun Irrigation: Traveling gun irrigation systems are versatile and can be used on a variety of crops. They are a great alternative for oddly shaped fields and for farmers with multiple fields to irrigate. They easily moved from field to field and there are different sizes available to fit your needs. There are fuel powered and water powered models available.
