    to allow sprinklers to be spaced more widely and reduce overall capital costs Nelson Windfighter regulated sprinklers were chosen for their good operation in windy conditions and the overall system was designed to ensure a good match between pipe size and sprinklers for both capital and operational efficiency Now that the system is installed Bob is really pleased with the consistency of coverage It blanket covers a job really well so there is consistent watering he says ADL went beyond initial system design Signs were made to indicate where lines should be placed each move This helps management of the system ADL also designed the system to operate in two zones operating for 12 hrs each via control valves The sprinklers allow for an application rate of 60 mm per 24 hours but the stony soils on the property mean the soils can only handle 30 mm By operating the system in shifts Bob gets better utilization of capital and can irrigate different soil types at different application rates with varying return cycles Overall the system has worked brilliantly for Bob and he has achieved an impressive 90 increase in milk production Farmer Bob Scott Designer ADL Products ADL Installer GV Electrical Area Carterton Read more Case Studies World First in Dairy Farm Irrigation Alan Cooper of Wanganui may well be the first dairy farmer in the world to use pop up sprinklers for irrigation Alan chose this system to overcome challenges of topography Now his idea is really catching on Being coastal means a lot of Alan s property was once sand dunes Like many more What goes up must come down ADL chose a simple gravity fed stock water system for the 1500 Acre Milbourne sheep beef farm in the Hawkes Bay The main challenge in the Milbourne
