Soil and Irrigation Management

Diseno sin titulo 48

Professional Irrigation Management

  • Monitors soil water content
  • Determines the zone of root activity
  • Visualise how deep the water reaches in each irrigation event.
  • Define filling and recharging points
  • Manage irrigation intervals, when, how much to irrigate according to soil water dynamics.
  • Reduces the resources used without losing performance

Example of use:

The blueberry crop in the graph is initially subjected to two irrigation events per day. With multilevel probe monitoring of volumetric water content, it was observed that an adequate soil moisture level for the crop could be maintained even with only one irrigation event per day.
Result: Immediate water and fertiliser savings of 50%.

The following equipment is available to carry out this management:

Estación de suelo básica

Basic station:

It includes the following sensors:

  • Temperature & Relative air humidity
      • Delta T – Optimum Spraying Time
      • Dew Point – Frost Protection
