With the title «Optimizing the use of water» , the space of time in the news of the Sixth, publishes a report on Plantae and its possible applications to agriculture, gardening, football and golf.

It is an honor for the entire Plantae team that a television network travels to the field to report on our application and highlight:

  • Water and energy savings, recognized by the owner of the farm with 20 hectares of superintensive olive trees.
  • How easy they are to install the sensors.
  • Wireless technology does not use cables.
  • Data collection in a receiver that carries a battery that is powered by solar panel.
  • Possible applications to the field in general.
  • The importance of the application to regulate water resources in irrigation.
  • The measurements they make of humidity and conductivity.
  • How easy it is to have real-time information on tablet or mobile.

Qué significa «Optimizando el uso del agua»

Neither more nor less than giving the plant or lawn the water it needs with the consequent savings.

It is a priority to control how much and when you have to water for many reasons:

  • For the water saving which at the moment is very important.
  • For the water stress of the plant, give it the amount it needs at all times.
  • Condensation is avoided, because irrigation is necessary, which also influences the salinization of the soil that, if not controlled, ends up harming the plant.
  • Improve production in quantity and quality.
  • In gardening improve landscape vision.
  • In sports fields keep the facilities ready, without waterlogging and with the right amount of humidity.
  • For the saving of travel time, because the information is seen on the mobile or tablet.

Why are the media interested in technology in agriculture?

The media are interested in the use of technology in agriculture for several reasons:

  • The growing problem of lack of water, increasingly a scarce good.
  • For promoting knowledge of the rural world.
  • Also publicize new technologies that can reach a greater number of interested people.
  • Encourage that an attractive profession can be made from the countryside.
  • Change the concept of poor training in farm workers. The future of agriculture is in the use of new technologies, that is something that nobody doubts.
  • Today's farmers are technologically trained and go to agricultural fairs to get the latest news. They have mechanical knowledge, control plantations, fertilizers and are constantly evolving to adapt to market demands.

Increasingly more intensive and extensive farms are being worked on. Controlling its irrigation at a distance makes it a huge benefit for the farmer.

The same for the caretaker of a golf course or a racecourse.

Displacements are avoided and time is saved and information is managed in real time.

In addition to the report we include a section of representative photos of our activity.
