Making the best use of water resources
Water is a key and vital element in agriculture and it is a scarce and unequal resource in many areas of the planet. Choosing the hydraulic pump that best suits your irrigation needs is of vital importance.
Drought years are becoming more frequent and the need for clean water is increasing. Therefore, water management due to water scarcity is the main challenge for the sustainable development of the agricultural sector
Water scarcity or unequal distribution of water makes it necessary to move water from one place to another. Pumping water for irrigation from remote areas or from deep wells can be a necessity and, at the same time, a great advantage.
The efficiency of irrigation in a crop is given by the ratio between the amount of water used for the crop and the amount of water used by the pump.) The less efficient the system, the more difficult it is to achieve the goal of saving water.
How to choose the most efficient pump for your crop
In order to know how to select the right pump, it is important to take into consideration the following basic elements:
> Type of fluid to be supplied.
> Quantity of fluid to be supplied.
> Distance between pump and point of use.
> Type of energy available and pumping system.
