In September, the innovative sprinkler installations of the American company Valley will start operating in Uzbekistan. The first batch of equipment has already arrived in Uzbekistan. The delivery value was USD 8.8 million.
“The import of sprinklers from the United States is another step towards fulfilling investment obligations determined by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers“ On measures to create an agro-industrial cluster for meat and dairy in the Jizzakh region ”. In particular, this equipment will increase the yield of land by 30% and reduce the cost of animal rations by 25-30%, which will directly affect the prices of meat and milk. This is the latest generation technique, the most efficient and economical, ”said Hikmatilla Karimov, director of Jizzax organic.
The new irrigation complex will cover 600 hectares of pastures this year. Valley sprinkler's plastic pipes are now 40% complete. The cluster is also carrying out other work to improve the irrigation system of the Jizzakh region: the construction of a pumping station has entered the final stage, an additional 6.2 km of the main pipeline has been laid.
“The gobies and cows in our agricultural cluster are on free grazing, which means they require extensive pastures with a high-quality forage base. We sow the land with pasture grass and compensate for the aridity of the Jizzakh climate with irrigation. An innovative feature of Valley technology is the Remote Control Modules. It is known that animals are stressed at every contact with humans, so in our cluster the operator will control watering from the office using a mobile device or computer, ”said Hikmatilla Karimov, director of Jizzax organic.
