The challenge

The farmer was faced with the challenge of increasing wheat production and facilitating farm maintenance and labor, all while facing the challenges of no-till, extensive agriculture.

The goal was to increase production, ensure total uniformity across the farm, adapt the irrigation system to the geometry of the farm and save production costs, including water, harvesting and maintenance.

The solution

The choice for the installation was the AZUD PREMIER PC AS emitter, specifically designed for Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) systems. Its self-compensating and anti-suction technology prevents the entry of particles into the emitter at the end of irrigation, guaranteeing optimum performance.

In addition, AZUD HELIX AUTOMATIC automatic cleaning and disc technology filtration equipment was installed, which maintains the water in optimal conditions and ensures a homogeneous mixture and a quality suitable for exceptional performance.
