Farm Efficiency

Water is the most important input in agriculture; without it businesses would struggle to function.

Agriculture has a high reliance on mains water, and the industry can better benefit from this vast natural resource. With water bills on average increasing by 30% per year, there is no time like the present to start using a natural source of water!

WHY USE NATURAL WATER?

  • Natural water is completely free and it’s yours whilst on your land
  • Get fast return on investment – in 1-6 years on average
  • Remove unnecessary water bills
  • Increase profit and expand your business
  • It’s better for spraying/irrigation – get improved reactions to chemicals and crop health
  • It’s better for livestock – animals prefer natural water, get increased feed conversions and health benefits
  • You can further enhance environmental policies and flood prevention measures
  • Get higher quality water than mains by treating your collected natural water

WHO OWNS WATER?

The water on your land is YOUR property, until it leaves through ditches, streams, rivers and once past your boundary line, it is no longer yours. So why not collect this before it leaves your land?

If you’re currently not collecting this water, but are letting it run into ditches and streams, then you would need to have an abstraction license to take it back, and/or letting the water company take and sell back to you at an average £2 per cube! Instead, why not harvest this water before it leaves your land and utilise it across your site?

1 acre of drained land in Lincolnshire, with an average yearly rainfall and a 50% percolation rate = 1 million litres a year leaving the land! This is water you could use.


THE WATER CRISIS

These pictures show the mains water problem areas for farming (the darkest red areas mean no mains water and lighter red means reduced use for agricultural from water companies!). With the increase in population and demand on the ageing infrastructure, agriculture is the first industry to be affected. Water companies will prioritise domestic water use first, then commercial, with agricultural last. These pictures show we will be in a water crisis if nothing is done now.
