Irrigation New Zealand

Preparing a clear and accurate design brief (specification) is essential if irrigators are to get the irrigation system they require for meeting both production (quality and yield) and environmental (seasonal allocation, water use efficiency and nutrient loss) targets. Irrigators also require an understanding of irrigation system performance indicators, this allows an informed purchasing decision based on the ability of the design to meet their design brief (specification).The Irrigation Decision Support package has been developed by INZ to help -

  • Irrigators gather the right information to prepare a design brief (specification)
  • Irrigators better understand irrigation system performance indicators when comparing design quotes
  • Irrigation designers develop a design brief (specification) based on irrigator supplied information
  • Irrigation designers prepare a quotation using standardised irrigation system performance indicators

The package includes -

Take time to read and understand each clause in the contract. DO NOT sign, unless you have read the checklist and answered yes to all the questions. We also recommend you take independent legal advice.

It is recommended that the contract should only be undertaken by Contractors who have an understanding of the INZ -
