Ivor is an experienced agricultural scientist and manager, having worked in the agriculture industry since 1991, first in agricultural management roles in Zimbabwe until 2005, then moving to Australia to work as an agronomist and manager. Ivor joined the team at AFS Agriculture in 2012 to work on developing an irrigation management system for a large scale agricultural project in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia. Combining his experience in programming with his knowledge of irrigation requirements, Ivor designed an irrigation management system to enable mine dewater to be used to grow fodder crops next to an environmentally sensitive area. This work was the foundation for the development of SWAN Systems. Ivor now devotes the majority of his time to the ongoing development of SWAN Systems, ensuring the platform continues to meet the needs of irrigators.
