Plantae success story in almond cultivation

With Plantae tools you can save water and energy in the cultivation of intensive and super-intensive almond trees.

Use of Plantae tools in the cultivation of super-intensive almond trees

In the graph we have an overview of an entire irrigation season. Humidity probes at 20cm (blue) and 40cm (black) depth.

The client saw how historically, his left sector collapsed recurringly. With the use of the Plantae tool he installed probes at 20 cm and 40 cm , and it was possible to collect the humidity cycle suffered by the soil according to the type of soil and the irrigation applied.

Data obtained by flowmeters in almond cultivation

In the second graph, we have the same temporal representation (an entire irrigation season), with the data obtained from the installed flowmeters, one in each sector. The farm is irrigated at once, and as we can see what happens is that, in addition to the implications for the type of soil, the water does not reach the left sector with the same volume as the right.

Here the information collected has served to redo the design of the irrigation installation.

Investment of technology in the cultivation of super intensive almond trees

The client installed the Basic service, 1 hub and 4 soil humidity probes measuring humidity, conductivity and temperature, as well as 2 flowmeters.

The investment is amortized by improving the irrigation system in the sectors where the water was not applied efficiently, obtaining more productions and improving the condition of the almond trees.

Keys to a good crop of the super-intensive almond tree

It has been proven that almond production and quality is much higher if water needs are controlled.

  • The super intensive almond tree (or hedge) need more irrigation, but controlled, because flooding harms it.
  • Install a flow meter to control the flow of irrigation in the hose or dripper. In addition to detecting possible faults.
  • The super intensive almond tree needs an exhaustive control of humidity, conductivity and subsoil temperature.
  • The meteo station is very important to control phenological changes.
