Specific focus areas include, but are not limited to, basic assessment of irrigation practices, root health assessment and recommendations, crop nutrition advice, precision farming practices, pruning advice, fruit set advice, fruit thinning advice and manipulations to ensure fruit peel quality.
Clients are referred to Irricheck for specialist advice on irrigation practices and the latest available technology for irrigation scheduling.
