As demands on Earths previous resources continues to increase mankind is challenged to look at sustainable ways in which to increase efficiencies and better utilise its resources. Humans are infinitely innovative and often solutions come when the pressure is on. Nutrient capture, reuse and efficient use of all nutrients is high on the agenda, there is no point buying expensive fertiliser and loosing half of it to the beyond the root zone or the air.
Water is a key ingredient on any food and fibre production system, but apart from being the H20 component, water also acts as a carrier for nutrients and agri chemicals, various technologies exist to get maximise the amounts used and the effectiveness of the systems delivering this.Feed efficiencies, soil preservation and animal well being are all interlinked, nothing works as a stand alone, the future is exciting.
In this environmental category TechniPharm make farming ezy leads the industry with the following systems.
1) Dungbuster® auto yard cleaning systems for dairy yards, clean and green wash over 25.000 meters of yard washing systems in use.
2) Ecobag ™ and Flexitank R ™ enclosed systems are the way of the future for effluent storage that means no greenhouse gasses and N lost to the atmosphere, for water storage it means clean water at all times and no evaporation. (ideal for orchids and vineyards)
3) Magnation, various applications to get better distribution and composition of water in irrigation or spray irrigation lead to better results. Do more with less. Water and power savings and cleaner infrastructure.
4) Effluent irrigation systems and components for delivery and distribution from storage to paddock, get those nutrients working.
5) Dairy and Beef housing, off pasture system do have a future role in NZ pasture production systems, avoid mud, capture nutrients, save feed and improve animal production and well being outcomes.
Storage of effluent is an ongoing matter of frustration and high cost on many NZ dairy farms.
It shouldn't be...
Nutrients stored properly and effluent properly stored and managed will contribute to greater farm profits as less fertiliser is needing to be obtained.
The National objective strives for " water quality clean to swim or drink" with farm effluent being one element in the mix to achieve this objectives it makes sense we aim to contain all nutrients and where possible reuse these at every step of the way
ECOBAG™, FLEXITANK™ are proven award winning solutions meeting the highest international standards.
'TIS IN THE BAG™ we say !

A variable pressure effluent system takes away the problem of irrigators not performing due to inadequate pressure at the far paddock. With a variable pressure system you remove some design restrictions and "grow options". Effluent pumping with a variable pressure system is easy. A variable pressure system is simpler to set up, but costs a bit more to start with but its advantages are numerous. To meet your consent min application rate you will have to work the pump at a "fixed" setting. When soil moisture deficits allow you can increase the rate.

Effluent management can be a serious issue for some farmers.. yet others understand that there is money in muck and that its not that complicated....
Cow effluent is a valuable resource... as a matter of fact what is not turned into milk is simply excreted... so there is energy and nutrients left which can be given a second chance to be turned into grass... from there to milk... To be on a environmentaly sustainable platform start planning now.

No market is as well equiped to deal with effluent distribution as the EU market.
Appart from massive volumes from not just Dairy effluent but also Pig and Beef farming farms, it is also riddled with legislation to comply with regional or national limitations, this means things change regularly and equipment is updated regularly
EU new equipment tax incentives make for a very active second hand market !

The science of Magnetron of water is not new, but the ability and systems to do this similarly to "natures forces" is.
Improving water quality, best utilisation of nutrients and more effective use of your water is now possible trough a simple and clever system provided by the Magnation range of products.2 products - view them here
Scale and mineral deposits can significantly reduce the efficiency of a water distribution system, be that in an on farm small bore or larger irrigation system.
Reducing or even better eliminating scale can result in massive energy savings and volume's pumped increases.1 product - view it here
Changing the spray pattern through pressure and nozzle changes and design is common.
What is also possible is creating changes trough treatment of the water chemical mix in the spray unit .
Trough a proven system of water treatment through magnetron increases in efficiency and reduced spray drift are exceptional.
In a world where resources are becoming scarce and where people want clean food, reduction of chemical use can only be a good thing. Join the many farmers already using this simple and very effective technology1 product - view it here
Home and Farm drinking water, be it for human consumption or stock is quality critical.
Hard drinking water reduces appliance and equipment life and requires more pumping energy. Clogged up shower heads are hard to clean.
Scale in water heaters reduces their efficiency.
Cut detergent use, and enjoy better tasting water.
Stock will perform better drinking "rain like water"1 product - view it here
