Irrigation Down Under – what we do
The IDU team designs and installs best practice above and below ground irrigation systems for commercial, agricultural, domestic, recreational, sporting and community applications.
Down Under Irrigation offers one of the worlds most advanced irrigation systems. The 21st century demands it. Water users need it.
The premium subsurface textile irrigation (STI) system supplied by IDU provides the following benefits.
Water is delivered directly to the root zone minimizing off target losses
Recycled water can be applied safely below the ground and without contaminating produce
Low pressure operation provides power savings
Increased production per unit of water
Water is applied more uniformly than other SDI systems
Dry soil surface inhibits weeds
Saline water has lower impact on crop health because it does not contact the foliage
Simple to install
Evaporation losses are lower because the soil surface is not wet
Dry surface is more stable allowing vehicle access for harvesting and spraying
Geotextile deters root intrusion into emitters
Above ground systems and other subsurface systems will be proposed and used by IDU when the situation demands it and when the client prefers it.
