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.
Typical Centre Pivot Irrigation
Wheel tracks everywhere
Susceptible to mechanical failure
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:
Overhead irrigation lines are suspended from 5 m high cables strung between poles 84 m apart to form 72 m wide corridors
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
The system can provide quick bursts of irrigation over the entire area to assist in frost protection and crop cooling
No need to wait for the pivot to come around, any part of the system can be activated immediately when called
Since there is no requirement to support wheeled infrastructure, the overhead system is suitable for all types of soil
