Travelling irrigators are an alternative system of choice for many Tasmanian farmers. Poly reel and Soft Hose travelling irrigators main advantages are flexibility and portability; they are best suited to undulating ground, provide considerable water efficiency and productivity gains as well as improved agronomic conditions and reduced the potential of deep drainage. Because of their relatively high pressure and labour requirements, travelling irrigators are best suited to annual crops including pastures with lower water requirements.
Hard hose irrigators are more efficient in difficult terrain; narrow fields; odd shaped fields; strip irrigation applications; when needing to move across distances to different paddocks; moving across roads; small to medium sized farms, and where they complement pivots to extend coverage. In all of these conditions the next choice is which hard hose irrigator has continued to evolve to meet today’s demands?
Why a hardhose irrigator is a solution
There may be one paddock that is awkward terrain, and then he may want to go to another paddock, that may be across the street, or a distance away. Pivots you can tow from one paddock to the next close to each other but you run into difficulty trying to tow a pivot to various paddocks that may be miles apart.
