Test Cases

Precision Irrigation/ Variable root pruning for Strawberry, Blueberry in Pannonian region




Biogeographical region

Range of digital technologies
Farm Management Information Systems (FMIS) and applications (inc. DSS), Reacting or Variable Rate Technologies

Target stakeholders

Short description
In this TC, a comparison will take place between 2 farms using digital solutions controlling irrigation, with 2 others, producing strawberries and blueberries using traditional ways, and not using any technology. The technology that will be used is a multifunctional controller for irrigation, which has operational versatility with local PC software and mobile apps.

Major goals
The goal of the TC is to decrease the costs of farm inputs such as less use of fertilisers and to increase yield production in order to positively impact the environment and make the farm production more sustainable. Further the technologies that will be applied will improve farmers income at the end of the production cycle and also improve quality of product.
