Irrigation plays a key role in the process of agricultural development. Irrigation artificially adds the optimal amounts of water needed for plant growth and development to the soil.

By using irrigation systems today, we are trying to reduce the impact of extreme climate change, such as drought and extremely high temperatures, and we are also trying to achieve higher yields in the cultivation of certain crops.

Today, about 18% of arable land in the world is irrigated and 40% of the world’s total food is grown on these areas. Today, about 13% of Europe’s land is irrigated.

Today, Croatia irrigates very few areas. According to some data, slightly less than 2% of the area is irrigated, which is a slight increase in the last few years but still insignificant. In the countries around us, the percentage of irrigation is much higher, for example: Greece 26%, Italy 24%, Romania 23%, Bulgaria 18%.

  • Working area: up to 16 x 300 meters.
  • New suspended double rail irrigation boom: the same precision in irrigating with even more flexibility of use.
  • Greenhouse market is changing and needs bigger area in which crops are under control: effect is that greenhouses manufacturer developed their products achieving length over 250 [m], wide up to 16 [m].
  • Starting from these key points, we have decided to develop a new irrigation systemthat can match these needs granting reliability and performances.
  • Less installation time is now achievable due to a new rail frame and special connection which suspensions can be fitted between trusses 6 [m] distance (according with other features). Less maintenance thanks to two steel cables, one alongside the water hose, which are usedto tensioning the system.
  • Water hose lifetime is increased as the new wheeldrives it during rotation and it slides on bearings along the rail. Maximization of irrigation area due the new flexible configuration of the components.
  • It has been extended the possibility to customize the zone cycles settings, through a simplified and intuitive touch-screen interface or with the renewed mod-rem provided by wider display and able to manage up to 240 irrigation booms
