Netafim – Precision Irrigation

Grow More with Less

About the Company:

Netafim are farmers first and innovators second. They started in 1965, in the Negev desert in Israel, trying to grow crops in desert soil, so they know what it’s like to farm in extreme conditions. That struggle taught them how to combine precision irrigation, agronomic expertise, and relentless innovation to help farmers grow more of any crop, in any climate, with less.

Their goal is to be the world’s leading irrigation company and drive mass adoption of smart irrigation solutions to fight scarcity of food, water, and land.

About the Solution:

Netafim USA is focused on creating sustainable agricultural irrigation systems that help to save water and don’t require environmentally damaging manufacturing methods. They believe precision irrigation systems are the sustainable solution challenging the way farming is done, by utilizing less and impacting less. Traditionally, farming and agricultural practices require large volumes of resources to produce large volumes of crops which can be difficult with limited resources. Instead, Netafim’s systems work by delivering the precise amount of water and nutrients straight to the roots of each plant. So you grow bigger, better yields every season – even with fewer resources.

Precision farm irrigation systems deliver specific, programmable amounts of water and nutrients directly to the roots of each plant to achieve better growth and crop development. Their systems thrive in areas where resources are scarcer but can be implemented worldwide to conserve water and other resources to increase sustainability and crop yield.

Precision irrigation is a unique sustainable agricultural approach that allows the application of water and nutrients to the plant at the right time and place and in small, measured doses in order to provide it with optimal growing conditions.

NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.

General Support & Other:

  • Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
  • Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
  • This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.
