Irrigation advices

" A local irrigation advisory service "

ACMG provides personalized irrigation advice based on soil moisture measurements in your crops to preserve and optimize the economic yield of the water resource. Controlling the irrigation makes it possible to provide only the necessary amount of water at the right time. This advice is intended for farmers in Lot-et-Garonne and the municipalities bordering Gironde.


At the end of the season, an analysis of the humidity data curve is carried out in order to be able to improve the management of irrigation during the following campaign. Irrigation advice has been offered by ACMG since 1985 and concerns all types of soil and crops: market gardening, arboriculture, field crops, seeds.

Irrigation management, a long history at the ACMG: Since the 1960s, the ACMG has tested most of the available solutions, abandoning them as soon as a better, more efficient and less expensive one presented themselves. Since 2003, ACMG has been using Sentek capacitive probes developed in Australia: precise, reliable and durable over time; they are perfectly suited to monitoring irrigation.
