Irrigation Systems

We offer system installations, maintenance & after sales services and agronomical guidance for optimization of actual system performance in the farm rotation.

Pakistan's economy remains widely dependent on agriculture. In Pakistan, land and climate are conducive to grow good quality crops, but improvement of yield and quality of crops to their potential remains a far distant objective, whereas a continuous demand for food of quality for an ever increasing population create more and more pressure on the agroecosystem.

Introduction and development of technologies that not only save precious inputs like water & fertilizer, but also can address productivity and quality requirement are the need of the day. High efficiency irrigation system bring, valuable contribution to address the situation.

Jaffer Agro Services (Private) Limited initiated its High Efficiency Irrigation Systems project in 2005 with technical collaboration and active support of M/S Jain Irrigations, India for Drip Irrigation & M/S Lindsey Manufacturing, USA for Sprinkler Irrigations and installed the first system in June 2006.

Jaffer Agro Services (Private) Limited is committed to accompany these technologies to the farm to secure the required Paradigm shift and support adapted management and agronomical practices necessary to get maximum economical return of these investments. Jaffer Agro Services (Private) Limited therefore offers services ranging from farm survey, design, finalization of system in view of specific farmer requirement, approval by supervising authorities when required to system installations, maintenance & after sales services and agronomical guidance for optimization of actual system performance in the farm rotation.

Micro / Drip Irrigation

Micro / Drip Irrigation

Micro / Drip Irrigation

In Micro / Drip Irrigation, water and fertilizers are applied through a network of UV resistant pipes and calibrated emitters (dripper, Micro sprinklers), at a defined flow rate, close to plant roots on plant requirement basis. Therefore, the soil near the roots is always kept at "field capacity" which enables the crop to easily capture required water and nutrients, and grow healthier. 

Since water is applied so close to the plants that it reaches only the area of the soil necessary to feed the roots Micro / Drip Irrigation, unlike other traditional methods, prevent the moisturizing of whole soil profile resulting in saving in water leaching and evaporation.

Whereas in traditional methods of irrigation water is applied in large quantities but at long intervals , resulting in a cycle of plant stress from soil saturation to wilting point , in Micro / Drip irrigation water will be applied in small quantity on a high frequency basis (daily) to maintain optimal moisture level in soil in which the plant can flourish.

 

Application
Suitable for irrigation of row crops like Sugarcane, Cotton, Banana, Strawberry, Vegetables, Spices and Floriculture. Also recommended to use in Greenhouses and Nurseries, used for widely spaced horticultural plants like Mango, Citrus, Guava, Apple etc.

Sprinkler irrigation

Sprinkler irrigation

Sprinkler irrigation

Sprinkler Irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water reproducing in a controlled manner the rainfall. Water is sprayed into the air and irrigate entire soil surface through spray heads so that it breaks up into small water drops spreading over the ground.

Sprinklers provide efficient coverage for small to large areas and are suitable for wide range of crops and are adaptable to nearly all type of soils as they are available in a wide range of discharge capacity.

Sprinkler system are  designed to ensure maximum water saving, combining high quality, affordability and ease of installation. Components  are essentially made of high strength & chemically resistant engineering plastics to achieve functional satisfaction and favorable cost economics.

 

Application: 
Suitable for wide range of  field crops like Wheat, Gram, Pulses as well as Vegetables, Cotton, Soya bean, Tea, Coffee, and other fodder crops. Suitable for Residential, Industrial, Hotel, Resorts, Public & Government Enterprises, Golf Links, Race courses.
Sprinkler System is subdivided in to Rain Gun, Centre Pivot and Lateral Move System

Pivot Irrigation

Pivot Irrigation

Pivot Irrigation

In the center pivot system, sprinklers are placed along a series of arched pipes which is pivoted at one end, and moved around the field in a circular fashion. Central pivot irrigation is a form of overhead (sprinkler) irrigation consisting of several segments of pipe (usually galvanized steel or aluminum) joined together and supported by trusses, mounted on wheeled towers with sprinklers positioned along its length. The system moves in a circular pattern and is fed with water from the pivot point at the center of the circle. The outside set of wheels sets the master pace for the rotation. Centre pivots will cover surface in relation with the number of arches and supporting tower up to 500m in length (circle radius) with widely used  size being the standard quarter mile machine (400m) covering 125 acres.

Most center pivot systems are equipped with drops hanging from a u-shaped pipe called a gooseneck attached at the top of the pipe with sprinkler heads positioned a few feet (at most) above the crop, limiting evaporation losses and wind drift. Drops can also be used with drag hoses or bubblers that deposit the water directly on the ground between crops. This type of system is known as LEPA (Low Energy Precision Application) and is often associated with the construction of small diking along the furrow length.

Crops may be planted in straight rows or sometimes in circles to conform to the travel of the center pivot in crops like cotton. Movement of each tower is secured by either hydraulically driven systems or electric motor-driven systems mounted at each tower, and specific tyre dimension can be fitted to specific soil profile.

 

Linear Move:

Similar structure can also be configured to move in a straight line, where the water is collected from a central ditch / canal. In this scenario, the system is called a linear move irrigation system.

Rain Gun  irrigation

Over Head Sprinklers / Rain Gun: 
Rain gun systems use large volume sprinklers operating at relatively high pressures (3-6 Bars), mounted on a riser stand or towed through the field. Following are three types of Rain Gun System.

Permanent System: 
In permanent system of installation raingun riser stands are permanently fitted to solid set pipeline network. Riser can also be supported by cement concrete block around the riser.

 

Semi-Permanent System: 
In semi permanent system pipeline network can be permanent and rain gun riser stand or only rain gun shifted from one location to other. Rain gun riser stand can be made detachable by using HDPE Quick-Connect® male connector at riser end and Quick-Connect® female connector at pipe end.
HDPE pipe in coil/hose of required size & length attached with G.I. insert joint on one end and Quick-Connect® female joint on the other end, can also serve as the pipe network. Alternatively, raingun alone can be shifted over permanently installed risers using quick release key and/or quick coupling valve.

Shiftable System:
In shiftable system entire pipeline network along-with raingun riser stand and rain gun can be shifted from one location to another. Easily detachable Quick-Connect® pipes are used for this purpose. Quick-Connect® pipes can be connected to rain gun riser stand. Flexible HDPE coil/hose can also be used in shiftable system
