Variable Rate Irrigation
Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI)
Optimise Water Distribution – Maximise Every Plant’s Potential
Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) technology allows for total control of water applied to your fields, by varying the system speed or by turning sprinklers on and off to achieve a desired result. Whether you have multiple crops in one field, rolling terrain or experience a drought, VRI technology provides you with the ability to have multiple prescriptions for each field. Each prescription precisely matches the unique attributes of your fields (soil variables, slope, drainage) crop and changing weather. This allows you to select the prescription that most accurately fits your irrigation needs that day with the flexibility to easily switch prescriptions if conditions change. There has never been a better way to efficently and responsibly manage the application of water to maximise yield and minimise loss.
Select the prescription that most accurately fits your current irrigation needs that day with the flexibility to easily switch prescriptions if conditions change.
