Smart Irrigation for potato production




Biogeographical region

Range of digital technologies
Farm Management Information Systems (FMIS) or App

Target stakeholders
Producers and the processors of potatoes.

Short description
In this TC, a holistic SF solution will be applied building on multiple data types such as IoT soil and weather data, EO imagery, soil analysis, farm logs, observations from the field etc. The main point is the provision of a service towards supporting the decisions on irrigation for potato producers in Damnica area.

Major goals
Shortage of irrigation water supply in the dry season prevents many farmers from growing their crops, and the annual benefit from agricultural products will decrease as the area of irrigation fields lacks water. The objective of this TC is to optimise the irrigation decisions while maximising the turnovers of the farmers and minimising the costs of input e.g., less water usage and waste.
