Good Irrigation Practices Make Success in Brazilian Agriculture

Centrifugal pumps to pull water, improve the results of Brazilian crops
According to a survey released by CONAB (National Supply Company), Brazil will break a record grain production in the 2019/2020 crop, with an estimated 245 million tons.
Among the highlights, as always, are soybean, corn, rice, beans and cotton, with an increase in planted areas and higher productivity than the 2018/2019 crop, hitting almost 64 million hectares cultivated.
Besides the business vision of the major grain producers in our country, we have the improvement of the grains grown here in Brazil.
Embrapa (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation), linked to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, plays a key role in researching genetic improvement of grains, researching best cultivation techniques, researching best practices in soil management and irrigation. With good programs for transmitting research results and providing seeds that ensure better adaptability to crop problems, Embrapa also absorbs and repeats innovations in crop irrigation techniques, making it possible for not only large producers to benefit from technological advances, but also the medium and small producers who depend so much on cheaper and efficient solutions to ensure their livelihood.
With growing demand for food to meet fiber and energy demands, experts estimate that agricultural production is expected to double by 2050. This points to the current inadequate growth rates of corn, rice, wheat and soybean production in global production. , which should be at least 2% per year.
Even with the technological advances in grain and machinery employed, the main factor that should compromise food supply concerns the problems of access and availability of water resources, which has been falling over the years. Not only for agricultural production, but also for other human and animal needs for water use, it is clear that better planning and management of water resources is necessary if we are to provide security of supply for all areas that need water.
Prolonged droughts, difficulties in transporting water to isolated locations, lack of resources for complex catchment facilities in rural areas are examples of how one can run out of water, even though it is in Brazil, the country with the most drinking water available in the world. Therefore, the development of water storage techniques on properties during rainy periods in large or small dams can improve water availability, including for safe use in irrigation of small and medium farmers.
The National Water Agency (ANA), acting with the National Water Resources Management System, constantly provides relevant information on the use of water in the irrigation of various crops, including technical guides and best practices for irrigation in agriculture.
An example is the Irrigation Atlas, providing a technical basis for the use of water in irrigated agriculture. It brings irrigation methods and systems, as well as technical underpinnings of established best performing techniques and rational use of water in various situations.
The use of dredger pumps as a daily tool for irrigation of crops and plantations is an example of application. However, water management in small dams, dams and well drilling also makes a dredger pump an efficient type of water pump to meet the needs of small and medium-sized water storage, providing safety for producers. that your crop will not be affected by a drought that may occur.
