Smart Overhead Irrigation

Do you think that centre pivots are the only way to irrigate large parcels of land?



There is a smarter way

Typical Centre Pivot Irrigation


Wheel tracks everywhere


Susceptible to mechanical failure


Expensive when a full circle is not possible

Smarter Overhead Irrigation


No wheel tracks and 84 m wide corridors with irrigation infrastructure at 5m high


No mechanical parts


Can start at any size block without price penalty

Remote Access To Control and/or Monitor:


Uninterrupted Access

Overhead irrigation lines are suspended from 5 m high cables strung between poles 84 m apart to form 72 m wide corridors


Dosing

Liquid fertiliser dosing through the irrigation system saves time and money. Dosing is preceded by soil wetting and followed by watering in


Low pressure Use

The floppy sprinkler system works on pressures as low as 2 Bar which saves money by not having to install high pressure pumps

Frost Protection

The system can provide quick bursts of irrigation over the entire area to assist in frost protection and crop cooling


Immediate Irrigation

No need to wait for the pivot to come around, any part of the system can be activated immediately when called


Soil Suitability

Since there is no requirement to support wheeled infrastructure, the overhead system is suitable for all types of soil

About Smarter Overhead Irrigation

The Floppy Sprinkler overhead irrigation system provides unobstructed irrigation for any sized cropping area with the largest installed site now measuring 15,000 hectare.


Unlike the centre pivot system used in large areas, this system has no fall out corners and as such will irrigate every m of available land.


The system consists of 6 m tall poles and a steel cable grid from where the irrigation system is suspended.


The grid measures 12m x 72m which results in creating 72m wide corridors under which farm machinery can operate freely.


Irrigation is slow like summer rain which is ideal for foliage watering, crop cooling and frost protection.
