Macadamia

RECORD CROP SIZE AND IMPROVED PRODUCTION OF MACADAMIA NUTS

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.

Why choose precision irrigation for macadamia?

  • Precise balance of water and nutrients to ensure optimum production
    Promote quicker and greater growth with the right mix of nutrients to yield better harvests and reap more profits.
  • Ride the wave of a most lucrative crop per land area
