Irriga Global provides an irrigation management service by recommending the water depth to be applied on each cropped field during the entire crop season. The criteria for when to irrigate and how much water to apply are based on the specific crop agronomic parameters, soil characteristics, weather conditions (measured and forecasted) and irrigation system.
When following the system recommendations, the grower increases crop and water productivity, saves water and energy, and significantly contributes to an environmental sustainability. Also, our recommendations reduce the risk of yield losses due to water stress or excess, while being very practical to operate and require minimal interference of the grower in the configuration or operation of the system.
Throughout the crop season our technical field staff makes periodic visits to all growers and fields (every 10-14 days). Our team closely follows the grower during the entire irrigation period, participating directly and exclusively in the irrigation management. The team possesses adequate knowledge of all the processes involving the use of all Irriga Global recommendations, from data collection, survey and analysis of all operation requirements (e.g. soil information, climatic data, crop parameters and irrigation system), to irrigation planning and management.
During the field visit, a report is made containing the information collected on-site by our field staff. Field reports are constantly uploaded to the Irriga Global's website and made available online to growers.
The growers or the contracting company receive a weekly report via email and website with a summary for each grower and field under management. This report contains the total recommended irrigation depth and dates, rainfall amounts and dates, water use of the last 7, 10 and 15 days, soil water content, plant height, plant phenologic stage and field photos.
Sustainable water use is very important for our society. Farmers and agricultural enterprises strive to improve yield with less costs. A proper irrigation management allows to increase productivity with conscious use of natural resources. Sustainability is in the heart of Irriga Global's services. In the regions where Irriga Global operates, we estimate green water usage by measuring the rainfall adjusted to the size of the managed fields. Blue water is calculated with the aggregate sum of all the irrigation depth recommended by our System. We also determine the crop water requirements during the growing season by measuring daily the soil water balance of each monitored field, defined as crop water used.
Please contact our technical staff for more information about the system.
We are currently negotiating for new representative agents in multiple areas in Europe.
Please contact us directly if your area is not yet covered by one.
