Irrigation Automation

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 the 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. The irrigation systems are automated into time-based systems, volume-based systems, open-loop systems, closed-loop systems, real-time feedback systems, and computer-based irrigation control systems that make agricultural activities more efficient.

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 its irrigation infrastructure or change irrigation practices to save water. Some of the practices include the 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 rebates 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.
