DataCol started its journey into the Irrigation space in 2010 with the business being invited to participate in the first tender process for water monitoring in NZ. The business built a strong reputation for reliability and grew to over 1,500 monitored points throughout the country.

In Oct 2015, it took over the assets of one of its competitors, Watermetrics, and in 2017 moved all its agri operations into the Watermetrics brand.

The business now has over 3,000 monitoring points and covers a wide range of farming operations throughout NZ with a range of technologies and solutions.
