When you’re growing maize, whether it's for human or animal consumption, every season is a race to higher yields. 
But when you’ve got a more precise way to control your water and nutrients, every season is better than the last one.

The challenge for maize farmers

Maize (or corn) reacts dramatically to the amount of water and nutrients it is exposed to. While traditional irrigation systems like flood and pivot give you some control, they’re inefficient and less uniform in the way they apply water. This becomes even more evident across different soil types, making it difficult to ensure you get uniformly better crops. These traditional irrigation methods are also not suited to uneven topography or odd shaped fields.

How precision irrigation helps

Precision irrigation in the form of sub-surface drip (SDI) gives you better control by delivering water and nutrients directly to the roots of each plant, in specific combinations, according to your plants’ developmental stages. It fits into any plot, and can be applied to all topographies, field sizes and soil types. So you can maintain optimal soil moisture and nutrient levels in all conditions.

Adding digital controls to your system allows you to monitor and optimise your yield as it’s growing, gaining data about every aspect of your field and local climate. So wherever you are, whether you’re growing for grain, silage, seed production or sweetcorn, you’ll ensure consistently high, top-quality yields every season. And even bigger profits.
