Irrigation pumps are many and varied. Pumps used for irrigation can cover a range of applications including:
- Water Intake - Irrigation starts with water intake from either groundwater or surface water sources (river, dam, storage tank, streams etc.)
- Water Treatment - Once water for irrigation is sourced, the next step, if required, is water treatment. This may involve filtration or the addition of fertiliser or chemicals. Water treatment covers processes used to make water more acceptable for the desired end-use.
- Water Distribution - Delivering water to irrigate crop using various techniques including, pivots, sprinklers, drippers and micro spray
