Today’s farmers face more variabilities outside of their control, with every season a race to produce higher yields and use less water and energy in the process. They’re facing challenges like weather variability, increasing energy costs, limited availability of skilled labour and market volatility.
The FMS automated irrigation system helps you take matters into your own hands and tackle those challenges by optimising the efficiency of your irrigation system.
FMS is a sensor based automated irrigation system that provides real-time visibility into the operating status of motors, pumps, valves, flow rate and other parameters of your irrigation system. The intelligent automated system empowers farmers to monitor and control different aspects of the irrigation system from the convenience of a smartphone or laptop.
Inputs and costs are reduced including water, time, labour, electricity and fertilisers, whilst ensuring the optimal use of water and maximum benefit to the crop. It all adds up to increased yield and bigger profits.
FMS has changed the way I farm. The amount of time I am saving by not driving around and making sure my pumps are operating effectively is already resulting in huge productivity gains.
It’s great to look at your phone, see you need to water, turn on the pump and be able to see it’s working correctly without leaving home or the office.
