At Southern Irrigation, the planning and product ordering process prior to installation takes a minimum of 3 months. The size of the project does not change this timeline.
The installation length depends on a few factors, including the size, shape, and topography of the land to be irrigated, the distance between the drip lines, the accessibility to water, and whether there is infrastructure in place. Some other SDI considerations include existing utility lines or irrigation district/environment approvals. For reference, the installation time for a 40-acre project can take about 1 month and a 625-acre project can take about 3.5 months.
