Improving irrigation through fertigation & chemigation


I-Feeder Technologies has grown to serve the need for an integrated precision application, both software and hardware. Previously, the intelligence behind precision application, in terms of recommendations and measurements, was a separate operation to that“As a brand I-Feeder has a simple vision – to be the market leader where it comes to the supply of dosing systems.” Says Johan van Zyl, CEO of this 40 year old brand, I-Feeder Technologies. “We want to achieve this without ever losing the enjoyment in what we do and the ethics we apply day to day to achieve this.”
There is an ongoing global food security challenge – by 2050, the world must feed 10 billion people. Over-fertilization combined with a constant increase of consumption results in reduced profits, water & air pollution. Now more than ever, the ag industry needs control, efficiency, reliability, sustainability, and technology.Fertilizers can account for between 30% and 70% of the yield. Farmers cannot afford to stake their success on estimations. They need access to advanced precision tools to secure their business and provide healthy food for generations to come.Technological improvements have made it possible for farmers to match plant nutrition application to the precise requirements of the crops on a foot-by-foot basis. With chemigation and fertigation, the farmer controls the timing and the rate, maximizing input efficiency while minimizing risk, contamination, labor, and time. It’s a win for both the farmer’s yield and the environment.

There is a strong connection between chemigation, fertigation and irrigation, the goal being for each plant to receive a uniform quantity of water and additive. Uniformity of application is the essential factor in successful fertigation and chemigation. Groundwater contamination is a big regulation in this regard and is less likely with fertigation because less fertilizer is applied at any given time and the application can correspond to the peak crop requirements.Accuracy, durability, economical, unaffected by outside influences such as pressure and water flow variations, easy maintenance, easy to use, can run dry and not sensitive to impurities and granules, are some of the main advantages of using the I-Feeder Technologies dosing system.Choosing the right size dosing system has never been simpler – with an experienced technical team, we collect information such as volume of product to be dosed, Max operating pressure and product to be dosed. However, each system is capable of dosing between 20%-100% of its capacity at 100% accuracy.The I-Feeder fertigation system is supplied as turnkey, meaning no additional sourcing is required and ensures correct installation, designed to be easy and simple.As an OEM since 2007, it has been a top priority to manufacture lightweight, strong, and durable equipment where the gearing is CNC machined from special steel to ensure longevity even under the most trying conditions.To learn more about the equipment, company, personnel, installation tips or any question, simply reach out to use via website, email, phone or social media.Our mission statement is: “To grow through services and innovation into a leader in the liquid chemical dosing market”.
