Overview

AgResearch’s Winchmore Farm receives water from Ashburton Lyndhurst Irrigation Ltd (ALIL). It has traditionally supplied water delivered via border-dyke irrigation. ALIL has invested in a scheme upgrade - supplying water via pipes to farms.
As part of its resource consent, ALIL requires all farms to have converted from border dyke delivery to sprinkler delivery by the start of the 2017-18 irrigation season.

As a consequence of the above, AgResearch needs to replace its border dyke irrigation infrastructure with sprinkler irrigation by Sept 2017, if it is to continue to irrigate Winchmore. This RFP is for the tree work required to be undertaken so that the sprinkler irrigation can be installed on the Winchmore Farm.

AgResearch require trees and hedgerows to be removed, fences removed, stumps work undertaken, burning and ground restoration to support the installation of overhead and pivot sprinklers. Please note it does not include the groundwork associated with the removal of the border-dyke infrastructure, only the ground work associated with trees and hedges.
