Business description: Precision irrigation is an advanced concept of high-tech agriculture to build an irrigation program capable of:
- Deciding the right time to irrigate
- Calculating the right amount of water needed
This helps improve:
- Economic efficiency
- Water saving
- Energy saving
- Increasing crop yields
- Reducing the amount of fertilizer washed out
Environmental parameters such as soil moisture, soil temperature, rainfall, air temperature, wind speed and light intensity are measured by the sensor system of the MimosaTEK device. Real-time calculations and recommendations will be made for optimal irrigation schedules, as shown on the user interface of the user’s smartphone. Users can control the irrigation equipment or the greenhouse equipment via the remote application at any time.
Inclusiveness: We involve low-income groups as consumers.
