Farm Irrigation

All land owners who have irrigation systems face the challenge of ensuring that their irrigation systems are profitable, sustainable and practical to operate alongside other farming operations.

Aqualinc delivers independent expert advice, and comprehensive practical information to help land owners meet this challenge. Our irrigation engineers have the experience to deal with all aspects of farm irrigation, for all types of land uses and all irrigation purposes – soil moisture management, frost protection, effluent disposal and soil renovation or rehabilitation.

For land owners wishing to invest in a new irrigation system, Aqualinc’s irrigation engineers can:

  • Assist with initial planning, concept development and obtaining resource consents.
  • Undertake detailed design and provide a comprehensive bill of materials.
  • Audit irrigation designs developed by others.
  • Conduct post-commissioning audits to ensure that your new irrigation system performs to your specifications.

For those investigating the purchase of an irrigated property, Aqualinc staff provide independent advice on:
  • The suitability and condition of the irrigation and water supply system.
  • The terms and adequacy of the resource consents held.

For owners of irrigation systems that have been in use for a few years, Aqualinc’s engineers can:
  • Conduct periodic in-service audits to check that your irrigation system continues to operate to specification and reliably deliver the gains in production and profitability that motivated the original investment in irrigation.
  • Investigate loss of performance issues for pumps and wells, and recommend solutions.
  • Optimise the design of additions to existing on-farm distribution systems.
