Consultancy intends to direct the design and installation of irrigation systems in the right, hence controlling the quality of the services and products in the industry. The following tasks are involved; site visits, reconnaissance surveys, existing system review, water source assessment, pre-bid meeting, bid review and trainings.
This involves our team putting into consideration all the available necessary parameters to come up with the most applicable irrigation performance wise not to mention economically. This enables our team undertaking a given project to recommend the most feasible and economical approach for the design or the project’s irrigation system, all while keeping in mind the client’s budget and expectations. Complete and detailed construction drawings, including installation details and construction specifications, for irrigation systems are provided to our clients on request. Construction document packages are developed using computer engineering soft wares. Through the use of CAD, construction drawings, quantities, unit cost data, and as-built drawings are accurately and cost-effectively analyzed.
These are long range sprinklers. They can be designed to be completely moveable, partly moveable or completely fixed. Completely moveable and partly moveable (semi moveable/ semi fixed) are the most practiced due to their affordable rates on large acreages. This is because a vast expanse of area is irrigated using little materials, hence low initial cost.
All products and materials required to complete an installation or project are purchased from reputable suppliers adhering to all ISO codes required by industry regulators and other governing bodies or professional entities that suppliers must adhere to.
These are mainly referred to as fixed sprinkler systems. It is only applicable to fix the sprinklers because usually the sprinklers involved have a short radius of throw and therefore would take too much time to move it all over the garden. These are systems utilizing sprinklers mounted overhead on permanently installed risers. Sprinklers may run on pumps fulltime to provide for pressure and water discharge required. Although these have slightly higher initial setup costs, they require less labour requirements since systems are fixed, and the user only operates the pump and the field valves.
This is the most suitable system in areas with water scarcity issues or environment where sparing water is a great deal. It’s also importantly the most suitable system for vegetables.
Skills transfer is a main objective for Med6 Agrotech when employing local employees, thus supplying skeleton supervisory staff. Individuals are selected from the fields in which they excel or show potential, and are then mentored to improve.
At Med6 Agrotech, we have different packages of small Irrigation kits for smallholder farmers to support and build farmers capacity in irrigation technology. These kits are also suitable for backyard farming in both rural and more importantly urban areas/ homesteads however small the available plot is. These kits have different sizez and are very easy to install, operate and fill with water. These kits are designed to improve food security and can be used by backyard gardeners, indoor planting, landscape aesthetic plants, NGOs and community based Organizations (CBOs). The kits can be customized to suit the target area and/or beneficiary.
This is so important in farming since many if not most of the areas do not ideally have abundant naturally flowing water sources. There is need to collect rain water, run off and spill off and after, it is critical that the water is stored in vessels of minimum losses.
