We are dedicated to addressing water scarcity by providing innovative solutions to governments, water management utilities, and growers. Our mission is to increase water availability and agricultural productivity through improved water-use efficiency. With advanced technology and a focus on precision water management, we empower our clients to optimize their water resources with unparalleled efficiency and control.
Rubicon Water targets these losses by delivering innovative solutions that enhance gravity-fed systems to improve water-use efficiency and promote a more sustainable future for agriculture and the wider community.
The Challenge and Opportunity
Challenge: By 2050, it is estimated that a 56% increase in food and fiber production will be required to feed the growing global population, resulting in an increase in demand of already strained water resources. Adding to this, projections indicate that 40% of the population will reside in river basins experiencing severe water stress.
Opportunity: Agriculture currently consumes 70% of the world’s freshwater resources, with only 40-50% of the water supplied through canal networks being efficiently used.
Diverse, Deployable Water Management Technology
Our technology revolutionizes water management across a wide range of sectors.
With our solutions, irrigation districts can be transformed, on-farm water management can be improved, groundwater management can be implemented , dedicated environmental flows can be delivered, and aquaculture systems can be optimized.
We maximize the efficiency productivity sustainability of water by:
Innovative Technology and Integrated Irrigation Systems
Rubicon Water offers a comprehensive suite of hardware products and irrigation management software (NeuroFlo), that are designed to revolutionise water management in gravity-fed networks.
Our flagship Total Channel Control (TCC) Network Control solution integrates smart automated equipment, such as control gates, flow meters, and radio technology, enabling autonomous operation of open canal distribution networks. This results in efficient and reliable water delivery, allowing adopters to achieve unrivaled levels of delivery efficiency.
All Rubicon products are scalable and TCC compatible, ensuring a future-proof investment for customers at any stage in their modernisation journey. Meaning that even if you start with a single Rubicon hardware or software product, our solutions can easily expand and adapt to meet your evolving water management needs.
