More about farm irrigation automation

Streamline Your Farm Operation with Irrigation Automation

In agriculture, staying profitable requires innovation and efficiency. One technology that's transforming the way farmers cultivate their crops is irrigation automation. Learn the benefits of adopting irrigation automation systems on farms and how they can revolutionize how you manage water resources and enhance yields.

Changing Farm Irrigation

Traditionally, farm irrigation involved manual labor, guesswork, and, often, inconsistent results. Everyone started irrigating when the farm down the road started irrigating. With the advent of automation technology, this landscape has drastically changed. Irrigation automation involves the use of sensors, controllers, and smart systems to manage irrigation schedules, water distribution, and system health, all while minimizing human intervention.

Advantages of Irrigation Automation for Farmers

Precision Irrigation: Automation systems can use real-time data from soil moisture sensors and weather forecasts to ensure that crops receive the right amount of water. This prevents over-irrigation, reducing costs of running the pivot and reducing the need for other inputs. Farmers can choose the features they want to take advantage of and which they don't. If you know your crop needs more water, you can override any settings.

Time and Labor Savings: Automation can eliminate the need for manually checking and adjusting irrigation setups. This saves valuable time and trips to the field for farmers and scouts, reducing labor costs, and allowing farmers to focus on other critical tasks.

More Consistent Crop Health: Maintaining consistent soil moisture levels is essential for optimal crop growth. Automation ensures that each plant receives the required moisture, leading to healthier plants and increased yields.

Energy Efficiency: Many irrigation automation systems are designed to optimize energy usage by running pumps and systems during off-peak hours. This saves on high energy costs and reduces the strain on the power grid.

Remote Monitoring and Control: Farmers can monitor and control irrigation systems from anywhere with mobile apps and remote interfaces. This feature is particularly valuable during unexpected weather changes or while managing multiple fields.

Data-Driven Decisions: Automation systems generate data on water usage, soil conditions, and system performance. This data can be analyzed to make informed irrigation strategies and resource allocation decisions.

Implementing Irrigation Automation

Evaluate Your Needs: Consider your farm's size, crops, and existing irrigation infrastructure. Identify the areas where automation can bring the most value.

System Setup & Configuration: Proper installation and calibration of soil moisture sensors are critical for accurate data collection. Our experts can place sensors strategically in different parts of your field to get a comprehensive view of moisture levels.

Integration: Ensure your chosen automation system integrates seamlessly with existing irrigation equipment, pumps, and controllers. (Our AgSense technology has this covered.)

Education and Training: Our experts can help you and your team learn the automation system's features. Training ensures you can maximize the system's benefits and troubleshoot any issues effectively.
