GET MORE CUTS AND DRY MATTER AT LOWER COSTS

If you want to gain an edge in the alfalfa market, you need to increase your alfalfa yields and quality, and lower your costs. Meet precision irrigation. 

The challenge for alfalfa growers

Alfalfa is a uniquely-demanding, water-intensive, perennial crop with a deep root system. But even a little stress caused by too much or too little water will have a negative effect on its growth, development and overall stand quality. That’s why unpredictable climates and wasteful irrigation methods like flood aren’t good enough – you need consistency, not vulnerability to over or undernourishment.

How does precision irrigation help?

Precision irrigation gives you total control over the alfalfa root zone by using SDI (subsurface drip irrigation), delivering water and nutrients straight to the roots of each plant. It fits into any plot, and can be applied to all topographies, field sizes and soil types. So you can maintain optimal soil moisture and nutrient levels in all conditions across your entire alfalfa field.

And if you add digital controls to your system, you’ll be able to monitor and optimize your yield while it’s growing, gaining data about every aspect of your field and local climate. So wherever you are, however you grow, you can ensure consistently high, top-quality yields every season. And make even bigger profits.
