STH can provide detailed rain water harvesting and agricultural water intake, treatment and distribution specifications, application engineering, project budgets and training to owners and engineers for your specific agricultural application.
RAIN WATER HARVEST
Harvesting rain is a practice that has been around for centuries. Rainwater harvesting systems provide storm water runoff containment while simultaneously storing water which can be used for irrigation.
AGRICULTURAL WATER INTAKE
Irrigation starts with sourcing water for the crop from groundwater or surface water from a channel or storage pond. Pumps used at the water intake need to meet changing conditions above and below ground, which have an effect on the pressure and flow required from day to day and from season to season.
AGRICULTURAL WATER TREATMENT
Once water for irrigation is sourced, the next step is water treatment, if necessary, and this may involve filtration or the addition of fertilizer or chemicals. Water treatment covers processes used to make water more acceptable for the desired end-use. Irrigation pumping solutions can reduce energy costs, safeguard the water source and ensure uniform coverage despite changeable conditions.
AGRICULTURAL WATER DISTRIBUTION
Water distribution is about delivering water to the crop using various techniques, such as pivots, sprinkler irrigation or drip/micro spray applications. Maintaining correct pressure and flow in the pipes and at the nozzle means more water per kwh and savings on energy, which is one of the highest cost items in farming.
