Horticulture / Viticulture

Viticulture

Wine is New Zealand’s largest horticultural export, earning $1.4 billion for our economy each year. The industry’s goal is to reach $2 billion by 2020 and WaterForce is proud to help support that exciting expansion.

Using our vast regional knowledge about soil types, climate and water sources, we can help you access and use water as efficiently as possible – whether that’s for irrigation, frost protection or both. Each property is unique and our design teams will create an effective system to help your business grow.

When it comes to water, both quality and quantity are important. WaterForce specialize in water filtration and water storage.

If water is sourced from rivers or dams, filtration is essential to protect your entire irrigation or frost protection system from blockages and damage. Having enough water stored on site is also a key priority for many vineyards. We can help you set up the best possible ‘insurance policy’ to cope with dry weather and install sufficient storage to meet your needs.

WaterForce can design, supply, install and maintain your entire irrigation system. We provide a full turn-key solution and offer 24/7 after-sales service if any breakdowns occur.
