Thursday, March 3rd, 2022

For many countries, irrigation is one of most primary sources for money. Their farmers work hard day and night to reap out the best crop in a season. As all of us know, there are few things that must be taken into account in order to grow the best crop – minerals and fertilizers. Out of these three, water is of prime importance.

Since ancient times, famers are used to make the proper storage of water using irrigation water tank storage. This is then used for irrigation purpose. Recently farmers came to know that rain is extremely beneficial when used with sprays for crops for fertilizers and for weed control.

In various cases, it has been found that bore has impurities or pH levels that diminish the effectiveness of the sprays and rain has been considered to offer the best and most consistent results. Because of this reason, many farmers are putting in larger rain tanks to collect and store large capacities of water for their spraying needs.

Most of the times, these farm water tanks are used in conjunction with rain harvesting systems that help in refilling these tanks with rain water. Other uses for farm water are in specialised farming activities where they will have bore water for irrigation or hydroponics tanks for mixing and storage of chemicals for the hydroponics system. 

Dams are also being re-considered in favour of large tanks due to the loss of water through evaporation and also due to contamination from numerous sources that make the water unusable. The good quality farm water ensure that water is fit for purpose and meets the needs of the process.
