Collect rainwater to irrigate sustainable crops

Hoy tratamos los métodos de recoger agua de lluvia para regar cultivos sostenibles, es una práctica económica que puede ayudar a aprovechar un recurso natural y reducir la dependencia de otras fuentes de agua.

Ways to collect rainwater

  • Roofs and gutters:
    • On the roofs of agricultural facilities, greenhouses and others, we have an excellent surface to collect rainwater. By installing gutters on the edges of the roof we direct the water towards a collection and storage system.
  • Non-cultivated areas:
    • Especially in mountains, channeled ditches can be made that collect water in small ponds channeled to crop areas.
  • Reservoirs and small dams:
    • Build reservoirs or small dams in strategic areas to retain rainwater. This can help store water during dry periods.
  • Storage tanks:
    • It uses rainwater collection systems, such as storage tanks connected to canals.
  • Water filtration:
    • To guarantee the quality of the collected water, it is advisable to install filtration systems. This will help remove impurities and sediment from the water before storing it.
  • Rain barrels:
    • In smaller areas rain barrels can be used to collect water. We place these barrels under the gutters to catch the water directly.
  • Gardens and green areas:
    • In urban environments, soccer fields, golf courses, permeable pavements can be placed. These allow rainwater to seep directly into the ground instead of pooling on impermeable surfaces.

Benefits of collecting rainwater

This system is already being used in some cities, but we are considering extending the method to agricultural areas, using the one that does not absorb the soil in non-arable areas.

  • Promotes education on the importance of rainwater harvesting and how it can benefit both the individual and community levels. Public awareness can be key to the success of these projects.
  • Advocate for regulations and policies that encourage rainwater harvesting in urban and non-arable environments. This may include tax incentives or regulations that facilitate the implementation of collection systems.
  • Reforestation can improve soil water retention and reduce erosion. Forests act like natural sponges that slowly capture and release water.
  • Important to work in collaboration with local communities and authorities to ensure that practices are sustainable and beneficial for all. Channeling can be done in community.

Plantae in water optimization

Our weather station allows you to monitor weather conditions and anticipate periods of rain. This can help in planning water collection, in case you have systems that need to be activated to act as collectors.

Weather Station

If we also combine the technique withhumidity measuring sensors, that tell us in real time when to water, we can achieve sustainable and economical agriculture.

A flow meter can be placed in the irrigation pipes to control the irrigation in the hose. or dropper

All the information is collected by a Hub/receiver that sends the data to a platform and the farmer can know all the parameters in real time.
