irrigNET Plant specific model based irrigation using Internet of Things (IoT)
IrrigNET is a service which enables improvement of crops production by optimizing irrigation process. The mathematical models of a specific crop (initially sugar beet) and soil structure are fed with data generated by sensors deployed in the field (soil temperature, humidity), current weather conditions and weather forecast to create an irrigation recipe, i.e. how much water should be used at a given time.
All this will result in:
Increased income through cost reduction
Increased yields and quality of the crops
Rational water consumption
Prevention of soil destruction
