A Recent Study Says Irrigation Automation Will Make a Huge Impact in near Future!!

The irrigation automation market is growing with the support from various country governments encouraging water and energy conservation as well as with the rising demand for food with the continuously growing population. Emerging water crisis, together with unpredictable rainfall patterns, is significantly hindering the use of conventional agricultural irrigation practices, thus propelling the use of advanced irrigation techniques for cultivation worldwide. Moreover, the integration of advanced technologies such as soil moisture-based and weather-based water management techniques boosts the adoption of irrigation automation systems.

Automated irrigation systems work with minimal manual intervention. Various types of irrigation, such as drip, sprinkler, and surface irrigation, are being converted into automated systems with the help of sensors, timers, and mechanical appliances. The automation of existing irrigation process makes the entire agricultural activities more efficient as well as supports the farmers and growers to conserve water and energy. To alter the frequency of irrigation and fertigation processes, power on/off of irrigation process is required, which results in optimizing energy requirements, and the system can be operated anytime resulting in minimal water loss are some of the benefits of advanced irrigation systems which makes them adaptable among the farmers.

Several governments worldwide are supporting the installation of irrigation automation systems owing to the rising issue of scarcity of water. For instance, the Australian government has initiated several R&D projects to enhance water usage efficiency. Moreover, the government has introduced the On-farm Irrigation Efficiency Program to support individual irrigators to enhance their irrigation infrastructure or change irrigation practices to save water. Some of the practices include installation of automatic gates or outlets and water metering, as well as the use of telemetry systems. Recently, the Australian government offered weather smart irrigation rebate for Perth residential customers. The rebate offered was up to ~ US$ 142, and it was primarily meant for the purchase and programming of entitled weather smart irrigation products.

The outbreak has created significant disruptions in primary industries, such as manufacturing, construction and infrastructure, energy & power, electronics & semiconductors, and automotive, among others. This has also affected the irrigation industry as the spread of virus continues to leave far-reaching impacts on the water–energy ecosystem. Moreover, fiscal constraints, lacking labor availability, and supply chain interruptions caused by travel bans are among other factors adversely limiting the water irrigation business.
