To provide the production (quality and yield) benefits farmers want from their irrigation investment and to minimise its environmental impact, irrigation needs to be efficient and effective. This requires good system design, installation, operation and maintenance.
Ray Mayne Hose and Fittings has been providing farmers with quality irrigation solutions since 1991, and as a member of Irrigation New Zealand, is compliant with the irrigation design code of practice.
Irrigation designers need to provide irrigators with systems that are capable of meeting crop water needs in a cost (capital and operating) effective manner whilst adhering to environmental limits. They also need to provide plans and system specifications so the systems can be successfully maintained.
