Irrigation Consulting Overview
Irrigation is a life-blood science without which the whole of man cannot exist. It hydrates, nourishes, produces, and sustains humanity’s most precious resource…food!
It is rumored that irrigation first began some 6,000 or more years ago in the region of ancient Mesopotamia and is partially based on the skillful ingenuity of Babylonian, Sassanian, and Abbasid rulers. Yet, this ancient beginning for systematic irrigation suffered set-backs at the hands of invading Mongols and was left un-restored by the Ottoman Turks. As millennia fell away, centuries slowed times measure, and recent years brought us better opportunity to observe irrigation’s unfolding in a more detailed fashion…modern advancements dawned agriculture’s stage to revolutionize how man uses and benefits from water.
With the advent of drip irrigation in Israel during the early 1960’s, visionary work of engineers, and almost limitless electronic capabilities over recent years…cutting-edge automated irrigation was born. Today, people worldwide are making use of amazing new irrigation technologies in pipe, distribution, filtration, and automation never before thought possible. As a result, developed countries lower cost of production, emerging nations realize new position in world economy, and third world regions feed their masses in more life-giving ways.
VisionLogic’s Owner Is Involved
Greg Benner has been deeply involved in the design, installation, and use of automated drip and micro irrigation since 1978. Many said “his overnight conversion of a 40 year old sprinkler-irrigated orchard to single-line drip…was nuts.” But, time has proven him to be an explorer-turned-pioneer in automated irrigation. Since, his research, system refinement, and use of the most advanced drip and micro irrigation, filtration, and automation available has continued. Greg personally uses and helps others select and operate state-of-the-art systems for nurseries, commercial orchards, row crops, research, and other applications. Greg’s related experience includes programmable fertilizer injection, chemigation, chlorination, and acidification of water to enhance plant performance, crop protection, system maintenance, and water quality in safe low-cost ways.
