Macadamia production is an increasingly competitive business and an excellent investment for farmers as its crops are very profitable. Precision irrigation is ideal for macadamia, as it delivers water at the same rate that the plant absorbs it, ensuring the soil moisture is always at the optimal level the tree needs. To keep up with demand while mitigating risks, you need to gain complete control over macadamia irrigation and balanced nutrition with efficient monitoring and Nutrigation capabilities.
How much water can be saved when switching to drip irrigation?
Compared to flood irrigation, precision irrigation can save you more up to 50% of water, with subsequent savings on electricity, fertilizers and labor costs.
Can I use fertilizers in my drip system?
Yes! Not only can you use them, but you also have full control over how much fertilizer you use. You can ensure next year’s high yields with precise and alternate Nutrigation, which guarantees healthy crops today to boost your production capacity tomorrow.
Can my macadamia orchard be irrigated remotely?
Yes. Advanced digital tools allow you to activate and manage your irrigation and macadamia nutrition from the palm of your hand, giving you remote access by mobile, tablet or computer - wherever you are. Read more about Digital farming.
