A lifetime of pumping costs can far out-weigh the capital costs of an irrigation system, so designing, managing and maintaining an efficient irrigation system is vital to minimising costs.

Explore the opportunities to improve the energy efficiency and reduce pumping costs of your pressurised irrigation system with Ag Vic’s Nick O’Halloran and Jeremy Giddings.

Key areas of improvement include:
• Hydraulic efficiency:
– Hydraulic optimisation
– Efficient design
– Irrigation technology.
• Pump efficiency:
– Pump selection
– Variable frequency drives
• System performance and management
• Reduce the volume of water pumped:
– System uniformity
– Irrigation scheduling.
