To irrigate is to water crops by receiving water from pipes, sprinklers, or other man-made
means, rather than relying on rainfall alone. It is the artificial process of applying controlled
amounts of water to land to assist in production of vegetation. Irrigation offers moisture
required for growth and development, germination, and other related functions. Although
predominantly used for Agriculture, Irrigation can also be used for dust suppression or for
wash bays in industrial applications.
Modern irrigation systems use reservoirs, wells, ponds, lakes, canals, bores, dams, tanks
and water mains to supply the water and the nutrients needed. Irrigation is often related to
drainage as it also can be the source of water into the reservoir.
Specialized pumps, valves and automations are used for irrigation. We at NFS being the
