Irrigation Management

The main objective of water management, or irrigation management, is to answer the question of "when, how much and how to irrigate.".

Development and implementation of irrigation management plans

Remote monitoring of actual irrigation requirement

Remote support for daily irrigation management

Periodic reports with performance evaluation and planning of subsequent irrigation management

The correct answer to this question will allow using just the exact volume required to crops, at the right time and in an appropriate manner to the existing type of soil. Today, thanks to the most advanced technologies, we managed with very simple and low cost methods and procedures, to significantly reduce the volumes consumed in irrigation. The central point is the concrete knowledge of irrigation system operations and of the soil / water / plant complex. The secondary objectives of irrigation management include preventing, minimizing and monitoring the environmental impact caused by irrigation avoiding water seepage losses and leaching of nutrients. Irrigation management is a plan, not a project. That is, it is a set of measures, actions and activities that must be implemented and coordinated according to changing circumstances. The implementation of an Irrigation Management Plan is based both on field sensors and also on properly designed irrigation and drainage systems. So there are no fixed components in an irrigation management plan and its composition may vary according to the characteristics the area and the specific objectives of management.

Irrigation management direct benefits:

Reduced water consumption

Reduced electricity consumption

Crop quality improvement, as will consistently receive all and only the required water

Cost reduction in pesticides and fertilizers, since losses by leaching will be minimized

Reduction of environmental impacts caused by leaching
