Isis Productivity staff are receiving numerous calls from growers who are wanting to assess the application and energy efficiencies of their current irrigation systems. Many of these systems are high pressure delivery systems that are having a huge impact on energy consumption particularly in a year like the one being experienced.
As irrigation is usually the major user of energy on most farms, ensuring that you are irrigating energy - efficiently can reduce overall energy costs, and often also results in water and irrigation efficiency.
