Every farmer knows the importance of providing your crops with the correct amount of water. Not too much, and not too less.

For a Dutch strawberry farmer the choice for a reliable irrigation system was easy.

The SRC distributor for The Netherlands – Ron van Dijck from the company LMB Rovadi BV – explains: “For quite some time my customer and I had investigated the market in order to find a high performing irrigation controller capable of supporting many stations, and with the possibility of adding sensor decoders and pump decoders.”

“Precise and accurate irrigation is not just important within the sweet fruit industry. It is critical and decisive. We concluded that the SRC Grower Controller 6000 D was the best choice, and we have not been disappointed.”

“In addition it was mandatory for my customer to access his entire irrigation system by the use of a mobile phone.” he continues “Precise and accurate irrigation is not just important within the sweet fruit industry. It is critical and decisive. We concluded that the SRC Grower Controller 6000 D was the best choice, and we have not been disappointed.””

The Project:

A portable irrigation pump where the SRC Grower Controller 6000D has been integrated. The irrigation pump is used to irrigate fields for strawberry propagation. The SRC Grower Controller 6000D solution makes it easy to move the pump to a new location. All what is needed is to unplug the 2-wire. 

The field consists of a number of strawberry rows with sprinklers. Each row is operated by a valve. The valves are controlled by the SRC Decoder 2002 situated above ground in pairs of two pipes, one per row. The SRC Grower controller is powered from the automobile battery via an inverter. Whenever an irrigation program is started, the SRC Grower controller starts the diesel pump. The SRC Grower controller is operated via a mobile phone or tablet over the Internet from anywhere.
