This one day course provides a mix of classroom learning and in the paddock practical application. Topics include:
What you need to know and how it affects your business. How do the RMA, Consents and Plan Rules fit together?
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.
Irrigator Performance Assessment
Data collected during the ‘irrigator walk’ is analysed using tools developed to check the performance of irrigators. This is a practical application that you can directly use on your farm.
Take Home Resources and Support
An ‘irrigation Toolkit’ including a suite of resource booklet guides is provided to take home for your reference and further learning.
