The correct amount of water on your corn crop is essential for producing high yields. Zimmatic irrigation systems bring a cost effective solution, alleviating risk when the weather isn't cooperating. They also give you more flexibility when it comes to planting, because your timeline is not affected by nature. Proper irrigation management minimises yield loss due to crop water stress, optimises yield per unit of water applied & promotes good management practices. The result is a greater return on investment.

Irrigation Impacts Every Stage of Growth

From establishment to harvest, effective water management is important at each stage of corn growth. TEAM Irrigation takes into account many factors when designing irrigation systems to meet your specific needs, such as, local microclimate, soil type and elevation.

As a corn plant grows, its demand for water rises with increasing leaf area, which reaches a maximum near the tassling stage. The period of time shortly before pollination through grainfill, when the kernels begin to dent, is a critical period during which adequate moisture is important to corn yield.
