With the second round of Farm Environment Plan Audits for all of our Stage 1 farms now underway, it is time to look at “ticking those boxes” in preparation for your Audits.  Irrigation performance and efficiency are important components of compliance for these audits.  This season, Irrigation NZ, in partnership with the primary sector and CPWL, are delivering the Irrigation Efficiency Summer Programme for 2017.  Last Summer, 134 Ashburton farmers participated in this programme, having bucket testing and the results interpreted for 244 irrigation systems.  This season, our farmers have an opportunity to enrol in this programme!

Get in quick, there are only 100 places available!

Programme dates:  November 2017 – 28 February 2018

Cost:  $115.00 (including GST) – this allows a maximum of 2 irrigators per farm to be tested.
