Our equipment is sourced from reputable companies all over the world and particularly from Israel, one of the world’s leaders in agriculture. The irrigation department carries out surveys, designs and installs irrigation equipment. Amiran’s fully-trained staff include irrigation engineers that guide farmers on the best systems for water management and irrigation. Amiran provides the following irrigation systems: ZIMMATIC Centre pivots by Lindsay Centre pivot irrigation is a form of 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 usually moves in a circular pattern and is fed with water from the pivot point at the center of the arc. These systems have proved themselves as highly appropriate and effective for varying types of terrain, cropping situations and irrigation requirements. Amiran’s center pivot systems are well-constructed using quality materials, and every component is designed for peak reliability, performance, and efficiency. Our warehouse in Lusaka manages a rotating stock of maintenance parts as part of ensuring best service to farmers. Overhead irrigation (sprinklers) Overhead sprinklers are designed for a wide range of general field uses. Portable, semi-portable and solid set systems are used to meet the demanding needs of modern, economic irrigation systems. Amiran provides a wide range of sophisticated overhead sprinklers from small nozzle size with low flow rates to large nozzle size with high flow rates. These sprinklers are field tested and made from highly corrosion-resistant materials, ensuring long life and minimum maintenance. Drip irrigation by Netafim Drip irrigation systems are recognized as one of the most efficient irrigation systems, particularly with regard to water consumption. A well-designed drip irrigation system loses practically no water to run off, deep percolation or evaporation. Drip irrigation also reduces water contact with crop leaves, stems, and fruit, creating conditions that deter the onset of diseases. Irrigation scheduling can be managed precisely to meet crop demands, holding the promise of increased yield and quality. Micro jet irrigation Amiran supplies a variety of micro-irrigation systems such as trickles, micro sprays and micro sprinklers. Micro-irrigation systems have a number of advantages over more conventional methods of irrigation. Less labor is required to operate micro-irrigation systems and as only small areas of the soil are irrigated, weed growth is minimized. The amount of water used can be closely managed to match the requirements of the crop.
