There are various methods for providing water to crops. Three common types of irrigation used in Australia and New Zealand are drip irrigation, flood irrigation and centre pivot irrigation.

What to consider before choosing a solar pump system for irrigation

First, assess the nature of your water source and its depth, which will determine whether a surface or submersible pump is required. It’s also essential to consider exactly how much water you require and the elevation it will need to be pumped to. Finally, consider your irrigation system’s crop requirements, water storage design and water distribution system. If your crops require water during low-sunlight periods, LORENTZ offers a wide range of alternative hybrid power options, batteries and system configurations to suit your exact needs.
