Forget spending your entire day, and half the night(!), switching water on and off. Simply set and forget with Padman Automation, allowing you more time for other important tasks (like sleep!).

Save Power

Higher precision irrigation equals less power consumption and wastage. When everything turns on and off at exactly the right times, your farm becomes a whole lot more efficient.

Ever wished you could get more done on the farm, each day? With Padman Automation you can! You’ll be able to increase your plant productivity and your labour productivity, giving you more time to spend on other essential activities and enhancements.
