FMS was born from the significant demand for a truly adaptable and user-friendly automated irrigation system. With the initial intention of partnering with an existing supplier, Founder and Director Kane Adamson trialled several systems available on the market to help meet the demand from clients of his rural electrical business. With each farm unique in its watering needs and objectives, Kane was not able to find an existing automated irrigation system that could integrate with the farmer’s existing irrigation equipment or that had the functionality required.
So, drawing upon 20 years experience in the ag-electrical sector and passion for software and electronics, Kane decided to take matters into his own hands. The philosophy was simple. Design an automated irrigation system that is easy to install, easy to programme and can be adapted to any irrigation set up. Three years of extensive development and on-farm testing later, FMS was born and since its humble beginnings has rapidly become the management backbone of many farming operations.
