BrioAgro advances Automatic Irrigation
Traditional agricultural water management systems utilize a significant part of cultivation land for preparing channels and distributions. However, through these systems, areas at lower altitudes receive excess water that causes prolonged waterlogging, leading to poor yields. The excessive waterlogging further increases soil salinity, making it unsuitable for cultivation. To this end, startups build automatic irrigation systems that tackle these issues. As a result, food producers streamline their irrigation for precise applications as well as reduce water and nutrients runoff.
Spanish AgTech startup BrioAgro offers AQUA, an automatic irrigation system for irrigated crops and greenhouses. The startup combines its ViTA 7 ground sensors and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide real-time crop, soil, and meteorology data. The startup’s intelligent system presents this data and enables the controlling of autonomous irrigation operations via an accompanying smartphone app. This allows farmers to save water, electricity, and fertilizers as well as increase yield and improve quality.
