Did you know that South Australia is responsible for 80% of Australia’s fresh potato produce?

The team at Water Dynamics Mt Gambier take great pride in the support role they play to provide local potato growers with the help they need to deliver high quality produce season after season.

The Mitolo Group are one of the many aforementioned potato growers that operate within the state of South Australia, and with their high level of production, they demand optimal water irrigation systems and solutions from their suppliers.

Water Dynamics Mt Gambier have been in a successful, long-serving relationship with The Mitolo Group since 1989, and in that time have played an integral role in assisting them grow large volumes of fresh potato produce.

Potato growers, such as Mitolo Group, stake their reputation and livelihoods on Water Dynamics’ ability to provide quality irrigation equipment such as centre pivots, linear irrigators, travelling irrigators, and more.

The T-L hydraulic centre pivot irrigators supplied to Mitolo Group over the past three decades have consistently proven to be up to the task of operating in South Australia’s very demanding climate. In addition, the pivots simple hydraulic method of operation has been reliable and allowed Mitolo Group’s workshop staff to carry out most maintenance and servicing requirements in-house.

In addition to supplying equipment, expertise, and service and repair capabilities, many modern day farmers also expect continuous improvements in the technological capabilities of their sites. This is something that Water Dynamics Mt Gambier Branch Manager Haydn McPherson knows very well:

“… Remote monitoring of irrigation systems is something customers have requested over recent years. Water Dynamics have partnered with some smart technology companies to develop various methods of monitoring and control of irrigation equipment. Customers can elect to have the entry level telemetry which allows monitoring and sends alarm messages to the user or the full control telemetry which allows the ability to remote start, adjust application rate, change direction of the centre pivot and has variable rate irrigation capabilities.”

With end-to-end knowledge of the industry and supplier expectations, Water Dynamics Mt Gambier is the perfect partner for South Australia’s potato industry.
