Solar powered automatic drip irrigation for green gardens – Australia Wide Delivery
How Irrigatia came to Australia:
My brother, George, who lives in the U.K., invented the Irrigatia and showed it to me when I was visiting. I thought that I needed one in Australia far more than he did! So, I brought one home. To test it properly, I built a vegetable bed out of sleepers, 1 ½ m by 3 m – 4 ½ square metres in all, which is right on the edge of what the Irrigatia can cover.
During the two weeks preceding Black Saturday (when the thermometer climbed to 47º at my place) we had day after day over 40 and I was rather surprised to be harvesting zucchini, sweet corn, beans, cucumbers and greens from that bed along with the odd self seeded tomato. We had no rain from the 6th of December but eight weeks later the Irrigatia was still watering.
The Irrigatia bed became a green oasis in the midst of my sunburnt brown garden, notwithstanding that I had used only 800 litres to water 4 ½ square metres – much, much less than normally would be necessary. After that, I thought that perhaps the rest of Australia needed an Irrigatia too so I decided to import and stock Irrigatia in Australia.
