The world’s most advanced
irrigation management platform
Who we are
Precision water and fertilizer management
We partner with commercial growers to increase yields and reduce costs through water efficiency.
Our unique software connects and activates hardware devices to deliver the next generation of decision-making support technology.
How it works
Technology & Integration
SWAN uses a mixture of industry-best-practice crop models and tailored models based on your specific crop, variety, soil type, climate, season, irrigation system details and more to determine how much water you need at any given time. As a secure, web-based decision support system that is based on science, you can rest assured that your data is both accurate and safe.
Unlike other irrigation management products, SWAN Systems is designed to work with any hardware. This makes it very adaptable and versatile, enabling you to manage irrigation at the whole farm level in one platform; even with a mixture of infrastructure types.
SWAN’s interface is designed to be simple, intuitive and user friendly, allowing less technically-experienced staff to easily manage irrigation and crop fertilizer programs, while at the same time allowing technical people to optimally configure the system as needed.
When users log in to SWAN Systems, they are presented with a dashboard which provides them with the snapshot of their account, including information on site health, a water usage summary, a forecast soil moisture summary and a weather forecast.

Matanuska bananas: water and power savings using SWAN
Matanuska, the largest banana producer in Zimbabwe, used SWAN Systems and achieved an annual estimated water saving of 30%, (~2.6 megalitres of water per hectare per year), which translates to an ROI of at least 7 times.
Based on these results Matanuska have rolled the system out to the rest of the operation.
Roger Fahl - Director
SWAN’s ability to incorporate its own unique algorithms with soil moisture probe data and satellite imagery takes my holistic farm management capability to another level.
SWAN Systems has provided us with great insight into the soil moisture status of all our fields. It highlighted that we were applying too much water and enabled us to cut our annual water usage by 30%. SWAN also provided ease of management of our blocks, as they are all scheduled from a centralized point ahead of time. Using SWAN Systems has really made a big impact on the way we monitor and operate our irrigation and has prevented us from wasting water and leaching fertilizers into the surrounding ecosystem.
Taking the guesswork out of your irrigation scheduling and water management is no easy task, regardless of whether you are tech-enabled or not. SWAN Systems enables growers to meet the varying demands of their crop, no matter the size of their farm operation. SWAN provides the necessary insights to better manage your water resources to make every drop count.
