Our story starts with a frustration. A frustration leading to the bright idea which has evolved into Next Farm Limited. From our humble beginnings in a dairy paddock the problem of irrigation and effluent control was faced on nearly a daily basis. With so many sprinkler heads in the fixed grid system it was difficult to control in a way that was an efficient use of time and water. With shifting weather conditions, it was difficult to make the best use of the water as irrigation schedules would need to be continuously adjusted. This is where the idea behind Next Farm arose.
We understood that having a reliable method of monitoring effluent application was also something of a thorn in the side of many a farmer. Because system failures can result in heavy environmental and council repercussions it is important to have a failsafe with an auto shutdown in place.
From the first on farm frustrations the idea was born, since then we have been working with farmers, irrigation installers, and electronics experts to deliver our solution. Now controlling and tailoring fixed grid irrigation schedules or monitoring your effluent application can be done remotely with a few clicks of a button. Enabling the more efficient use of resources, water and time.
