We have worked for many years throughout the Hunter Valley, which is one of Australia’s best known wine regions, to help establish new wineries and orchards plus support the growth of the industry during times of water shortages. We strongly recommend that farmers looking to establish a new orchard or vineyard, or looking to upgrade their current irrigation system, consider investing in micro-drip or micro-spray irrigation systems. TEAM Irrigation Rutherford can advise what system best suits your needs taking into account soil & crop type, planting density, water quality and budget.

Also worth considering is installing a fixed sprinkler system when investing in orchard and vineyard irrigation infrastructure as it will give you protection against frost and extreme temperatures.

Whether it’s a 1 hectare orchard or 5,000 hectare potato farm our 20+ years of experience enables us to design, supply and install in any location and at any time.
