Irrigation systems consist of everything involved in bringing the water from your water source to your plants. Whether it is drip irrigation, overhead sprinklers or ebb and flood, the sizing of pipes, pumps and valves is important to ensure you can get an adequate and even amount of water to all of your plants.

Depending on the size of the crop, the irrigation cycle could be simple, or it could progress through a series of zones controlled by automatic solenoid valves.

AIS Greenworks keep an extensive supply of dripper assemblies. Please call us to discuss your needs.

It is a given that water recycling is an essential procedure required in the Australian agricultural and horticultural industries. The National Water Initiative (NWI) has been established as Australia’s enduring blueprint for water reform. Through this initiative, governments across Australia have agreed on actions to achieve a more cohesive and national approach to the way Australia manages, measures, plans for, prices and trades water. In short, if you are not already recycling water, it is guaranteed that this procedure will be enforced within the not too distant future.

AIS Greenworks represents a shared commitment by governments to increase the efficiency of Australia’s water use, leading to greater certainty for investment and productivity for rural and urban communities and for the environment. Introduced below is a sample of some of our strategies/tools, which shows how we are currently supporting the industry regarding this issue.

High levels of bicarbonate can make it difficult to adjust the pH level to the desired value, especially when using borehole or surface water.

The Priva Neutralizer pre-treats your source water, reducing bicarbonate levels and hence facilitating a stable pH level.

The importance of controlling the pH level

Each crop has a pH level at which it performs best. Maintaining the right pH level is not only essential for the optimal intake of nutrients to prevent deficiencies and diseases, but also to ensure excellent plant quality.

  • A stable pH level from the fertiliser unit down to the plant roots
  • Less blockage of drippers thanks to reduced bicarbonate levels
  • A healthy crop Improved growth, flavor and vitality of your crop
  • Applicable for all kinds of water sources; borehole water, surface water and urban water sources can all contain high levels of bicarbonate

If you are making use of storm, dam, bore, recycled or drain water, it will need processing prior to being pressurised for use in the greenhouse.

AIS Greenworks has a long history in water treatment – from field irrigation to our speciality of protected cropping applications. We are the company you want on your side when it comes to preparing the cleanest water possible for your applications.

Do you want to reuse your drain water? Maximising the usage of resources is key to efficiency and environmental responsibility. For this reason, we have several systems that provide disinfection to drain water.

Disinfection of your drain water will reduce pathogen transfer between plants and neutralise micro-organisms that may damage your crop.

Your greenhouse is unique, and as a result so are your plants. How they grow changes, and you need to be able to adapt and make specific changes to their nutrient application.

Our range of fertigation systems allow for accurate and reliable dosing that you can keep control of 24/7. Keep your plants strong and healthy with an AIS Greenworks fertigation system.

The algae in your water storage are microscopic organisms that fall into several categories, including one that is actually a bacteria – blue/green algae. There are several different methods of removing and preventing algae build up.

Taking the water away from the greenhouse and back to your recycling centre is an important system within itself. Depending on the lay of the land, different systems can be incorporated to move the water out of the greenhouse and back to your holding tanks for later use.

Our systems can be customised, but they usually consist of a sump pump system that picks up the gutter drain and pumps it back to the holding tanks. This can incorporate pH, EC and volume.

Based on professional growers’ needs, high quality water storage is essential to day-to-day operations in the greenhouse. Reliable source water and storage solutions are fundamental to growers, yet often hastily undertaken.

AIS Greenworks provide high quality solutions – from long lasting EPDM products to lined tanks.

Based on the professional growers’ needs for higher accuracy and reliability in monitoring water content (WC), electrical conductivity (EC) and temperature in substrates – AIS Greenworks source and work closely with manufacturers of high quality systems.

We can help you monitor your substrate to ensure essential information you receive is up to date, easy to obtain and reliable to provide optimum return on investment of the equipment and your ongoing crop. One of the big advantages to automating this process is the ease of controlling the consistency of delivery across your greenhouse when it is linked to climate and irrigation automation systems.
