Installing an Agriculture Irrigation System is a big step in maximizing the land use of your ranch or farm. But exactly when is the best time to install an agriculture irrigation system? The answer might surprise you.
The best time to install an agriculture irrigation system is actually from October through April. Why? This is usually the time that your fields can tolerate a little intrusion. Of course, if you’re in a slightly warmer climate, this time period will be shortened. But the reality is that most farmers and ranchers will have minimal interruption from their ongoing ranching and farming operations during these months.
What are the other benefits of installing an agriculture irrigation system during the fall, winter and early spring months?
For one, you can see the effects of the growing season. Your land will tell you where it needs additional irrigation. A great time to determine this is when your crop season is over.
Another reason is that you don’t have to deal with high-growth agricultural needs such as preparing, seeding, fertilizing and harvesting your fields.
Many people speculate that installing an agriculture irrigation system in the winter is hard work. Well, it’s hard work any time of the year. But doing a winter installation can have terrific benefits. You’re not racing against time, even with the shorter days. You can do more planning and field evaluation that is harder to do with a million things on your plate like you have in the middle of summer. And you can see the full fruits of your labor by having a full growing season of maximized irrigation.
