Automated irrigation systems work with minimal manual intervention. Various types of irrigation, such as drip, sprinkler, and surface irrigation, are being converted into automated systems with the help of sensors, timers, and mechanical appliances. The automation of existing irrigation process makes the entire agricultural activities more efficient as well as supports the farmers and growers to conserve water and energy. To alter the frequency of irrigation and fertigation processes, power on/off of irrigation process is required, which results in optimizing energy requirements, and the system can be operated anytime resulting in minimal water loss are some of the benefits of advanced irrigation systems which makes them adaptable among the farmers. The irrigation systems are automated into time-based systems, volume-based systems, open-loop systems, closed-loop systems, real-time feedback systems, and computer-based irrigation control systems that make agricultural activities more efficient.

Several governments worldwide are supporting the installation of irrigation automation systems owing to the rising issue of scarcity of water. For instance, the Australian government has initiated several R&D projects to enhance water usage efficiency. Moreover, the government has introduced the On-farm Irrigation Efficiency Program to support individual irrigators to enhance their irrigation infrastructure or change irrigation practices to save water. Some of the practices include installation of automatic gates or outlets and water metering, as well as the use of telemetry systems. Recently, the Australian government offered weather smart irrigation rebate for Perth residential customers. The rebate offered was up to ~ US$ 142, and it was primarily meant for the purchase and programming of entitled weather smart irrigation products.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Irrigation Automation Market

The COVID-19 crisis is affecting the industries worldwide and the global economy is on the verge of taking the worst hit in 2020, and the impact is likely to persist in 2021 as well. The outbreak has created significant disruptions in primary industries, such as manufacturing, construction and infrastructure, energy & power, electronics & semiconductors, and automotive, among others. This has also affected the irrigation industry as the spread of virus continues to leave far-reaching impacts on the water–energy ecosystem. Moreover, fiscal constraints, lacking labor availability, and supply chain interruptions caused by travel bans are among other factors adversely limiting the water irrigation business.

Increasing use of smart sprinklers is offering prosperous growth opportunities to irrigation automation market players

A few smart sprinkler controllers are capable of being integrated with weather intelligent systems, which respond accurately to the real-time climate conditions and are supported by smartphones, providing ease of control to the user. Also, smart sprinkler irrigation has recognized to be one of the most efficient means of protecting a range of crops against frost damage. Water is released at a suitable rate; the temperature of the plant remains at or close to 0°C. Frost damage can result in severe crop losses for vegetables, fruits, and nursery crops. Severe damage generally happens when the frost comes after buds and blossoms began to open. With the significant benefits delivered by the smart sprinklers, its demand is expected to flourish in the near future, which, in turn, is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the irrigation automation market.
