Irrigation Automation

Automation of Irrigation has the potential to provide real gains for producers. The gains will be mostly with regard time and water savings. Both combine to make irrigation farms more sustainable, more productive and more profitable. There is also the important lifestyle benefits, so irrigation can be started and stopped to maximise performance, not to fit around when the irrigators are able to apply or drain water from fields. The video talks about developing setups to minimise infrastructure costs with larger bays, and about designing irrigation systems so that automation can be added over time. Automation can be as simple as supply gates and drainage gates, but can also include a range of sensors to help growers schedule irrigations to meet plant needs. Automation is a game changer for irrigated agriculture in Australia.
