Water is the most crucial input for agricultural production since it is necessary for plant growth. Irrigation is the replenishment of soil water storage in the root zone of plants using means other than natural precipitation. Agriculture uses 50-70% of the water consumed in Australia per annum, and irrigation uses 90% of that.

Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment with over 45 years of experience in irrigation stand ready to help you with any application from drip and sprinkler to centre pivot and linear irrigation solutions.

Irrigation Applications

With drought, which is all too prevalent in Australia, relying on rain is a gamble. The natural application of water to the soil by direct rainfall is known as rain-fed farming. Irrigation is the process of applying water to the soil artificially using tubes, pumps, and sprays.

There are a variety of irrigation techniques in which water is evenly distributed throughout the entire area. Irrigation water can originate from various sources, including groundwater, springs and wells, surface water, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and even treated wastewater or desalinated water.

Common Irrigation Applications

  • Drip Irrigation
  • Sprinkler Irrigation
  • Centre Pivot & Linear Irrigation
  • Controlled Flood Irrigation
