Agricultural Rainwater Harvesting for farms and farmers

industrial rain water harvesting

"Throughout the seasons, we all routinely harvest often hard-won rewards in the farming industry – but what of, arguably, the most valuable “crop” of all? Rainwater! It is there for the taking… an asset that can save you money and reap dividends for farming and the environment alike." The Environment Agency

With the demand on water resources rising and the impact of climate change, rainwater harvesting (or rain recycling) is a practical and cost-effective way to supplement your available water sources. As a result, you reduce your mains water use AND your mains water bill whilst also reducing the impact you have on the environment.
