Lowcliffe has flat contour. Soils range from peat to stony silt loams. Lowcliffe includes 255 hectares of leased land. The high water table makes good drainage essential, and a new three million litre above-ground effluent storage tank has been installed. The majority of the farm is under pivot irrigation with the balance irrigated by travelling guns and sprinklers.
Pivot irrigator on old “deer block” paddocks
A new Pierce irrigator was installed in February 2017 on the land used by a previous owner to raise deer. The capital cost of the new irrigator is offset by better water use efficiency, driving positive economic and environmental outcomes.
