Fertigation/Chemigation for Agriculture and Landscape Irrigation

Fertigation or Chemigation is the application of fertilizer or chemicals through the irrigation system. The actual function of the technology, injecting products into irrigation systems, or injection for short provides the end user with expanded option for treating water, soil, and fertility needs. Injection is a technology used extensively by a broad array of industries for a variety of purposes. The primary goal of injection in the landscape and grower markets is to provide increased automation to a process resulting in better efficiency and simplicity.

Filtration for Agriculture & Landscape Irrigation

Filtration is an essential component to any drip or micro irrigation system. There are many different types of filtration practices available, and choosing the correct one can make or break your system. Filters help protect your system from plugging and wear, while ensuring you are getting the most out of your irrigation system.

Irrigation Technology & the Future of Farming

In the middle of the 20th century, forward thinkers envisioned flying cars, a dream that hasn’t happened yet. They seldom addressed what farming would look like years down the road. When considering the future of farming, you probably think about self-driving tractors, but you’re thinking shouldn’t stop there. Fully autonomous pivots and completely connected crop management are closer than you realize. The goal of agriculture — and especially irrigation — is to produce greater yields with fewer inputs. But what does that mean? For starters, it means less water, lower energy bills and decreased labor costs, not to mention an improved quality of life. As machines located in fields for decades, center pivots are uniquely positioned to become data hubs and drive a revolution in artificial intelligence and machine learning to take data from reactive to predictive.

Sustainability of Irrigated Agriculture in the Central Valle

The Central Valley of California is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world due to its fertile soils, Mediterranean climate and water distribution infrastructure, but long-term sustainability of irrigated agriculture in the Central Valley is threatened by several factors. A number of policies have been enacted to mitigate these factors and ensure conservation of natural resources and economic prosperity of the region. However, for growers to be compliant with the regulations while remaining profitable requires adoption of advanced management practices and technologies. Findings from case studies applying these technologies in various crops grown in the Central Valley will be presented. Overall, sustainability of irrigated agriculture in the Central Valley of California will depend on building partnerships between growers, coalitions, regulators and other stakeholders including environmental justice groups.

Sustainable Irrigation: An Integrated Approach

With the changing elements of agriculture and a growing population to feed, mechanized irrigation for water use efficiency and sustainability is becoming more important for global food production and grower economics. Many tools are available to determine soil, crop and environmental conditions, generating large amounts of data. A grower can be overwhelmed with how to manage this data, how to apply it to their situation, and the necessary tools to truly improve their water use efficiency and help insure sustainability. Mechanized irrigation has long been challenged by the industry to provide an integrated and strategic approach, combining rich available data with advanced mechanized control technology.
