Disruptive cloud-based irrigation controller to optimize water use efficiency in agriculture
Start date: Oct 1, 2014,
End date: Jan 31, 2015
The objective of GALNIMBUS is to improve irrigation-water use efficiency up to 30% by developing a cloud-based irrigation controller able to perfectly match irrigation and fertigation doses to crop needs.The system in order to perform detailed real-time forecasts for crop water requirements-Defines irrigation needs based on crop specific data bases -Analyses real time data from the field (soil moisture, solar radiation, pH, plant stress, etc ) to evaluate crop status. -Checks online weather forecasts to readjust irrigation doses-Satellite images Thanks to GALNIMBUS irrigation tasks are fully automatized, and the grower can monitor the crop or activate irrigation valves remotely anywhere at anytime.
