Fertigation is an efficient and effective way to fertilise crops, saving time and money while improving yields.
Fertigation Systems works with existing irrigation and nutrient plans to improve pasture sward and grazing residuals; reduce soil compaction; increase soils carbon levels; provide more control over where and when nutrients are applied; and is an efficient way to apply nutrients.

What Is Fertigation?
Fertigation is a more efficient and effective way to fertilise crops, saving you time and money and improving yields. Results are achieved by using a ‘little and often’ principle to enhance plant growth and health as well as grow more dry matter.
Fertigation Systems work with your existing irrigation system and nutrient management plan to improve pasture sward and grazing residuals; reduce soil compaction; increase carbon levels in soil; give you more control over where and when nutrients are applied; and provides more efficient way of applying nutrients.
Fertigation Systems nutrient programmes are based on well-researched soil and plant science to ensure healthy pastures and well-nourished soils. Pastures grown by Fertigation Systems have a balanced nutrient spectrum that allows the cows to absorb more nutrients from the grass, which reduces the nitrates returned to the pasture, decreasing urine patches and possible leaching. Trials show that ‘little and often’ is better for both plant and animal health, which ultimately improves your bottom line.
Fertigation Systems provides a complete service that includes:
- advising you on how to integrate fertigation into your farming operation;
- supply and installation of pumps;
- supply direct to your farm specially formulated products that will enhance your existing fertiliser regime;
- ongoing support and advice to ensure you gain full advantage from your system.
With Fertigation you can use a more balanced nutrient programme that is suitable for all farm types – crop, cattle, dairy and sheep farms – and is environmentally sustainable.
