Mid-West Irrigation supplies every aqua thing except water. Irrigation, even in a climate as traditionally benign as that we enjoy at Bloodwood, is essential for quality grapes. We grow on gravel here at Bloodwood so the vines appreciate a little help at critical times of their growth cycle. Pre bud burst, pre-flowering, and pre-veraison spring to mind in a spring and early summer like we’re experiencing at present. Mr Sproule knows all about pump lifts and dwell times and he is your man when it comes to calculating head. He even installs solar powered pumping systems if you are really serious about your environment. All you have to do is add water.
