IMPROVE YOUR IRRIGATION SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
Irrigation NZ has developed a one-day training course aimed at Managers and Operators of irrigation systems. Its focus is to help irrighators improve their knowledge and application of irrigation on their properties
This 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, Plan Rules and Consents 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.
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 and maintenance manual specific to your property.
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.
A comprehensive set of resources is provided to take home for reference and further learning: check here. Irrigation manager training enables correct management, operation and use of the key input into your business
