Field Management

Information technology, telemetry, automation and remote sensing technologies have been developed to such an extent over the recent years that they can now be implemented on a large scale, with low cost and high-quality results (remote sensing systems, satellite and terrestrial weather forecasting systems, mobile telephony, UAV-Drones, wireless sensors and so on). For example, the rational use of irrigation water is always a very important factor in improving the overall water resource management and improving agricultural production.

Today, with the combined use of the aforementioned technologies, crop irrigation is significantly improved, which in turn leads to water saving, improved production and minimization of the environmental footprint as well as the total production costs.

The main benefits of using technological innovations are the following:

  • Direct monitoring of critical crop parameters
  • Minimization of inputs
  • Saving on irrigation water and other natural resources
  • Improved production quantity and quality
  • Reduction of production costs
  • Minimization of the impact on the environment
