Water Booms are growing in popularity worldwide, particularly in North America and Europe. Other regions should give serious consideration to such systems.

Our first installation was at the Weyerhauser Tree Seedling Operation in 1973. Since then numerous improvements have been made, since this rather modest beginning. There are many companies producing every type of system from simple "back and forth" systems to robotic controls.

We offer systems for such diverse applications as:

  • Seed Propagation
  • General Irrigation
  • Greenhouse Watering, with or without Fertilization Equipment
  • Tree Seedling Production
  • Outdoor Nursery Beds
  • Market Garden Crops
  • High Value Row Crops
  • Outdoor Container Nurseries

OPTIONAL FERTILIZER, DIRECT INJECTION SYSTEM

  • Ability to have fertilizer and chemicals injected into the spray booms without having to travel from a remote source.
  • Less fertilizer or chemical to be flushed out of hoses, pipes and spray booms.
  • Less fertilizer and chemicals required. More profit.
