Agriworks Mobile Irrigation Systems

Abraham Salomon

Agriworks Mobile Irrigation Systems (AMIS) are mobile, modular systems capable of irrigating 1 – 6 acres of land. The system can be shared by more than one farmer, and customers can spread the cost while still being able to irrigate commercial-sized plots.Two base systems and three different AMIS attachments are offered to meet specific smallholder needs. There are three basic systems: AMIS-Foundation, AMIS-extra and AMIS-50. Each system can be combined with either of these three components: the AMIS-MVUA KALI (rain gun), AMIS-DRIP (drip irrigation kit), and AMIS-IMPACT (sprinklers). The systems are designed to ride on the back of a motorcycle or cart and can deliver water up to 200 meters+ from a water source.
