Irrigation Systems and Equipment For Agriculture Needs in Tasmania

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 30   |   Comments: 0

Many years ago, when half the current number of people inhabit the planet, it was a common perception that water was an infinite source. Less water was needed in agriculture  as  there was  less demand for food. Rainwater, rivers and lakes and other water sources satisfy the needs of  the nearby soil and crops. Today, the competition for water  resource is much more intense. There is the increased competition for water from industry, urbanization and biofuel crops. This competition pushes the farmers to find ways to use water more efficiently in order to increase productivity  and to meet the growing demand for food.

Successful  agriculture is dependent upon farmers having sufficient access to water. Irrigation Systems and equipment  give the farmers the alternative to use enough water to meet the demands of production while at the same time allowing the ecosystem to function effectively. Irrigation systems and equipment help the farmers achieve maximum crop yield. However, irrigation may cause problems to the soil and the environment  in  general.

Irrigation system that safeguards the soil doesn't mean going back to the manual irrigation system which uses buckets and watering cans like in most African countries. The goal is to supply the entire field uniformly with water, so that each plant gets the amount of water it needs, neither too much nor too little.
