Vegetables

Over 25 varieties of fresh and processed vegetables worth almost $600 million per year are exported to 76 countries at present, with onions, potatoes, squash and peas accounting for almost half of New Zealand’s total vegetable exports.

While the future looks bright, growers face a number of ongoing challenges including the rising cost of land, environmental compliance costs and the availability of water.

WaterForce has a wealth of experience and knowledge about local water catchments and irrigation schemes in your area. We can help you design an efficient irrigation system which will result in optimal application rates and minimise your running costs.

We can also help you meet ongoing environmental compliance regulations by installing flow meters where required.
