Water is scarce and irrigation is important, finding the balance means using appropriate irrigation control. Getting your crops the right amount of water at the right time, can mean the difference between a poor or a phenomenal harvest. However, irrigation is also time-consuming when you have to manually check the water flow, turn on the system or measure soil moisture levels. Working in a remote location means that many things can go wrong when you’re unable to constantly check your irrigation.
Farmers nowadays need a way to control how much water their crops get, and they need information about the process. Control of irrigation would not be complete without a remote monitoring system providing them with this data about their smart watering system.
