“…We had Southern Irrigation install our system. We walked into their office one day and asked if they had anything to do with drip. They informed me that they did, and the rest is history. Southern Irrigation was great; they gave me lots of support. I really appreciated our 6:30 Monday morning meetings out in the field. The people, their work ethic, hands down, bar none, number 1.”

Despite the changing design requirements of our system as the project unfolded, they proved themselves to be entirely adaptable and flexible to our needs and were nevertheless able to deliver the project on-time, exceeding our expectations.

“We have always used drip systems; it benefits our crops in different ways, but most of all it is the environmental standpoint that there is minimal evaporation and waste.
Southern Irrigation has a great team that have come together to handle our individual needs as a client, multiple farm locations, logistics, ease of service and just a great team.
We would suggest other growers to use Southern Irrigation in a heartbeat. Between the technical expertise and problem solving, this year we have been extremely pleased with the improvements we have seen as a company in 2020 versus 2019.”
“We have implemented drip at TCV vineyards over a number of years, there was an immediate impact on fruit quality and cost savings. Fruit quality increased dramatically with a 30% increase in anthocyanins and a greater skin-to-pulp ratio. As the bunches stayed dry during the season, the impact of the drip on the reduction in disease and rot is amazing. Huge cost reductions in pesticides and hydro… and we nearly had to retire the mower.
The technical support and delivery of the final product have been excellent. Southern irrigation offers Innovative products and has everything you need to maintain or construct a world-class system. Tinhorn Creek has used Southern irrigation and the friendly staff for everything from irrigation design, system mapping, and maintenance advice to consumable parts.
We would definitely recommend Southern Irrigation to anyone who wants to be smart about their irrigation projects.”
