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
Thanks to GALNIMBUS irrigation tasks are fully automatized, and the grower can monitor the crop or activate irrigation valves remotely anywhere at anytime.
