Since 1978 Novedades Agricolas works designing and installing irrigation systems for all types of crops and farm sizes as well as in different countries around the world.
All these years of experience allowed our company to evolve in irrigation systems together with our customers, which has as a final result that both our technical team and our installers possess a vast experience in all types of irrigation.
Cost increases and declining profits in agriculture has contributed to design facilities more and more energetically and economically efficient.
The components of an installation vary depending on the irrigation system used by the farmer. Then we will see the main components of a drip irrigation system, it's probably the most widely used in precision agriculture.
COMPONENTS OF AN INSTALLATION OF AGRICULTURAL IRRIGATION
The main components of an agricultural drip irrigation system are:
Its function is to reserve water and ensure its availability to supply irrigation, as well as to save this when watering shifts.
2. Head irrigation:
Basically an irrigation head comprises pumping equipment, filtration equipment and subscriber equipment, you could say it is the brain of an irrigation system.
3. Irrigation network:
This is a pipeline system that allows transportation of irrigation water (and fertilizer in the case of fertigation) from the head to the irrigation emitters placed next to plants.
4. Irrigation Emitters:
They are responsible for supplying water to plants (droppers).
5. Control elements:
They are devices that help us control the whole process of irrigation, from accountants to electro valves. All these elements would be within a standard design, but for example if the system was sprinkler irrigation, we would change the porta emitters for sprinkler pipes.
