Builds on your knowledge of soils, water and climate. How should we schedule irrigation applications? Including explanation and demonstration of the tools available to help.

Operation and Maintenance

The safety and efficiency of your irrigator and your staff depends on regular maintenance and correct procedures being followed. How you go about developing procedures specific to your farm is explained.

After an ‘irrigator walk’ we begin building an operations & maintenance manual specific to your property.
