WATER OPTIMISATION IN AGRICULTURE THROUGH FERTIGATION
Efficient management of water, a non-renewable and limited natural resource, is a major challenge for the future of agriculture, which consumes around 70% of the total water withdrawn globally. Population growth, industrialisation and climate change mean that natural resources such as water are becoming increasingly limited.
Modernisation of irrigation systems or the introduction of crops with higher agronomic value is no longer enough to make agriculture profitable. Investment is technology is essential. The increase in profitability and optimisation of resources within farms is already evident with the use of information technologies (such as sensors that measure humidity, temperature and EC of the soil or substrate) and with the use of irrigation systems that allow the efficient use of fertilisers and water.
According to World Bank data, there are more than 330 million hectares in the world with irrigation facilities, so being able to improve the management and performance of these facilities and achieve precision irrigation and fertilisation is very important. Technological innovations allow not only to improve agricultural productivity, but also to improve sustainability and environmental protection.
To increase yield and efficiency in agricultural water consumption, Nutricontrol has the precision technology that enables the automation and control of fertigation.
The NAIOS compact heads are designed based on the needs of each particular installation, offering maximum technology in a minimum of space, all with a robust, compact and easily transportable design. With this equipment you can obtain great energy savings in any farm.
