    Please see below a testimonial on how we recently helped a grower in the Goulburn Valley area:

    Testimonial from Ian and Shane Ahmet.

    "We didn’t realise the potential of the data and how valuable the information would be. We soon realised that what we spent would be a good investment. The probe data has given us the knowledge and confidence to make more informed decisions about how we are managing our irrigation."

    "On the block where the probe is installed, the cost of water for one irrigation is around $1800, so there is a significant saving for each irrigation that is not required, based on the data collected and reviewed. However, the real benefits of the probe data is not to save water, but to apply the correct amount of water when the trees need it. We believe that we reduced water use on this block by 20% after the first season."
