Irrigation energy efficiency

How to run more energy efficient irrigation systems

There are several ways you can better manage irrigation to improve energy and water use efficiency -

  • Refinement of existing systems
  • Investing in new more efficient designs
  • Using decision-based tools to irrigate based on multiple sensor and information inputs

Increasing efficiency will undoubtedly save energy and water but it can also produce better, healthier plants more quickly and, in many cases, with relatively small investments in time and technology. This factsheet explains how.
