Irrigation New Zealand

The risks faced by irrigation companies, both large and small, are diverse and potentially complex.

The difference between risk management and insurance broking is the latter will address typically only 25% of all the risk exposures an irrigation scheme faces.

A risk management approach addresses all risks, whether they be insurable or not, and then identifies the most cost effective way to manage those risks. This is where Willis Towers Watson can help.

We are a worldwide leading professional risk management adviser and insurance broker. Willis Towers Watson represents a significant number of Irrigation Schemes, Power Generation companies and Hydro facilities throughout New Zealand.

We advise Boards of Directors and Scheme Managers to achieve superior and cost effective risk mitigation options. Our advice ideally should start at the irrigation scheme design stage, (where there is often a one-off opportunity to reduce long term risk thorough good design), and continued throughout the life cycle of the Scheme.

Wednesday 11 April–12 April

10:00 am - 17:00 pm

Join us for a two day Fertigation Master Class

When: 11th and 12th April 2018

Where: Lincoln Event Centre

Cost: $650 +GST

Places are limited so get in early to avoid disappointment.

The outcome of the class is to produce a resource that will provide irrigators with clear information for successful fertigation, including costs and benefits, good management practice knowledge resources and related training opportunities.

It will also enable irrigators and their service industries to inform and achieve any future regulations around fertigation equipment and practice.

The master class will help to unlock the future potential of fertigation in NZ through providing answers to the following questions –

  1. What are the costs and benefits of fertigation?
  2. What are the equipment options for fertigation and to which scenarios are they best applied?
  3. What does ‘good practice’ design, installation and management look like?

The programme involves presentations on each topic followed by discussion and agreement that these are industry accepted standards. There will be a field trip on the afternoon of day 1 as well as a dinner on the Wednesday night. Full programme will be released soon….

The price for the master class is $650 + GST

Notice of withdrawal: 7 days – 50% registration refunded or transferable to another person, 3 days – no refund – transferable to another person
