Upgrading an irrigation system can improve water uniformity and reduce your operating expenses

NOVEMBER 2008 Issue no.9

Irrigation is a critical aspect to the success of any business growing and/or maintaining plants. With increased scrutiny of water usage, typically increasing charges in water and a reduced availability, all businesses should consider assessing the efficiency of their irrigation system to improve their triple bottom line. For many production nurseries the question is how to optimise production while reducing water use and doing this in an economic manner. This is the second part of a series of Nursery Papers on this topic. In this Nursery Paper Michael Danelon, Nursery & Garden Industry New South Wales & ACT NGINA Industry Development Officer IDO will identify the benefits of retrofitting an irrigation system in terms of the efficiencies gained to assist in justifying the return on investment to the business.
