Hydrotech

 

Hydrotech is a brand new decision support system for irrigation. It’s been developed by a testing process made on different companies and on various crops, to ensure ease on data transfer and on consultation by the final users

Sky's The Limit

 

According to the “European Innovation Partnership on Water’ (http://www.eip-water.eu/) ” one of the main priority in water management is to promote development and spread of brand new decision support systems (DSS), exploiting the power of the rising technologies 

A Closer Look

Application

 

Hydrotech allows users to estimate changes in soil water reserve, crop’s water consumptions and stress level

 

Web APP, Mobile APP..

Climate Changes

 

The environmental and territory impact of climate changes is a prominent subject especially in the South Italy territory. Indeed according to Enea Report Apulia is one of the most exposed land

 

Environmental Impact

 

Direct impact risks as desertification of own territory and rising sea level

Rainfall

 

Global projections indicate global warming and rainfall’s intensity and distribution alterations as main evidences of climate changes

 

WATER RESOURCE

 

To defend the water resource and limit the environmental impact, European directivities and national laws enforce a raising number of restrictions for water use in crop’s irrigation. Otherwise, the sustainable management of natural resource has been identify as the top priority of PSR (Rural Development Politics) in 2014/2020 program

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE INNOVATIONS

The ICT companies involved in the Hydrotech project had tested the hardware and software innovations to face some problems as system’s reliability and performance and to ensure the continuous availability of services and user’s ergonomic and easy interfaces

 

 

Hardware

In the Hydrotech project some specific dataloggers (RTU) had been tested. These dataloggers allow data capture of the soil-plant-atmosphere system thanks to the connection with specific sensors

 

 

 

Software

Hydrotech system allows a fast information transfer to mobile devices (smartphone or tablet) and their app. The WEB version of the software has settings that help you having everything under control and working interactively

SAVING

 

A significant water saving (10-15 %) has been detected, thanks to a better crop’s water consumes quantification and an optimized calculation of water volumes based on the real water retention capacity of the soil
