What is precision irrigation?

Precision irrigation is a unique sustainable agricultural approach that allows the application of water and nutrients to the plant at the right time and place and in small measured doses in order to provide it with optimal growing conditions.

From the plant to the planet - everybody wins with precision irrigation

Feeding a growing world

Precision irrigation powers climate resiliency that brings stability to the farming community. It enables farmers around the world to meet the growing demand for food, without using up our limited resources and helps us preserve our planet for future generations.

Optimal growing conditions

Precision irrigation takes care of the plants development needs by allowing the application of water and nutrients without waste, at the right time, in the right place and in the right quantity. When you irrigate precisely your plants enjoy high availability of water and nutrients, and they thrive.

Higher yields & better ROI

Precision irrigation enables farmers to increase profitability by achieving higher yields per hectare, and better-quality crops, while using less water, fertilizer, and energy. When using precision irrigation, farmers enjoy greater predictability, and stability in an uncertain climate.

Precision fertigation

Good Plant nutrition is a matter of efficiency

Precision irrigation is not only the best solution for the application of water, it is also the most efficient method for applying fertilizers. Fertigation enables you to deliver nutrients in measured doses, and with perfect timing to support optimal plant growth and protect your soil from leaching and groundwater contamination.

USING WATER WISELY TO GROW MORE WITH LESS™

Water is one of the scarcest resources in India. Given the ever-increasing scarcity of water, it is high time that we must use it wisely. Precision Irrigation is one innovative technique that uses water wisely and helps farmers achieve higher levels of crop yield in a minimal amount of water. Netafim, one of the leading farming solutions providers in the world, has now turned to help Indian farmers experience the wonders of precision farming. Scroll down to see three ways precision irrigation changes agriculture for the better.

FAQs

  • Can I use precision irrigation in any shaped field?

    Precision irrigation systems are very flexible and can be easily fitted in odd-shaped fields and sloping terrains. Using pressure-compensated emitters and hydraulic valves in an optimal way can give a wide range of possibilities to achieve optimal results for irrigation and fertigation.

  • Can I use precision irrigation with any water quality?

    Understanding the irrigation water quality is essential for an optimal irrigation solution. Precision irrigation systems include different technologies of filtration and emitters with high clogging resistance that allow an optimal solution for almost all water qualities.

  • How will using precision irrigation affect my nutrition routine?

    Using precision irrigation is all about.. precision. This is especially true when applying nutrients. We call this process - “fertigation”. The optimal and precise application of soluble fertilizer can make savings in regards to fertilizers and labor and minimize leaching and waste. Having a "stand-by" system allows the farmer to deliver nutrients in the right amount at the right time and by that create optimal conditions for the crop which leads to higher yields, better quality produce, and cost savings.

  • What are the benefits of using precision irrigation?

    We measure irrigation systems by their efficiency, uniformity, and ROI. When comparing precision irrigation and fertigation systems to any other means of irrigation we can see that the water use efficiency is the highest (95% vs. 80-85% in pivot and 60% in furrow) with pressure compensated emitters and their flexible design capabilities can create superior uniformity in any condition, terrain or soil. The Return Of Investment is usually less than 3 years (this should be calculated according to each market and field condition) making precision irrigation the best irrigation technology in most cases.
