The damage we create when we do not irrigate enough is obvious. Each and every one of you at one point or another in life, had a living plant. In the beginning of your relationship with your plant as with anything else new, you were excited and irrigated the plant exactly on time. But after a while, when the task became a routine, you have started forgetting to irrigate the plant.
After a while the plant the plant has started to show regular damage that such mistreatment creates, instead of standing erect, the plant started to tilt. After further neglect the leaves began to dry and the plant eventually dried. The situation described above talks about an extreme case of water deprovation, which eventually killed the plant. Of course when you are talking about professional farmers, such will never be the case. Through his knowledge and experience, a farmer would never let a plant tilt a little, and much less let it dry out and die. Nevertheless if the effects of lacking irrigation are more scuttle than an actual viable effect on the plant, even a professional farmer would not know that he damages his own crop.
As oppose to not irrigating enough, irrigating too much, looks like much less of a problem. If you irrigate too much, you reason, the plant will always have enough water and thus will never dry out and die. Unfortunately this is a misconception, to demonstrate this, lets go to the extreme. Take your plant, the average household plant and start irrigating it one litre of water ten times a day. In the beginning there will be no visible effect, but after a while the plant will start to die.
If you pull out the plant once it's affected you will see that the root system and the plant itself, close or under the ground is starting to rut, in a fact, you have created a mini swamp. In this case too, you will have to distinguish between two groups of people, the average Joe and the professional farmer. Killing a household plant has little or no consequence to the average Joe, on the other hand, damaging the crop by over irrigation creates an incalculable damage to the farmer as a business and to the entire farming industry. The damage is not only created by the damage to the crop, but also the huge amounts of resources, such as water and fertilizers that are wasted. With the only result of creating above mentioned damage to the crop.
The problem with irrigation systems today is that at the very best, they are heuristic, meaning that the best irrigation systems available today will be most likely comprised of hundreds of different sensors that will generate huge amounts of data that may have nothing to do with the state of the crop. The statistical analysis which is performed on the data will presume to give useful information to the farmer, unfortunately in most cases, the opposite is true. All this information only serves to confuse and misguide the farmer.
Our solution is a fully autonomous irrigation control system that is based on a specific mathematical model, which is calculated from a single sensor by a computer, which gives a consistent usage of information without any statistical or other biases. THE IRRIGATION IS PERFECT EVERY TIME, our computer will never sleep or stop monitoring the crop, it will always be there when the crop needs it. The ability of 3D Irrigation is an amazing advantage of our system. Not only we are able to sense the water, but also we can precisely irrigate to a specific depth into the soil, such that only the main root system of the plant is irrigated. This eliminates waste of water to the depth, reduces environmental impact of agriculture, reduces the amount of resources to grow the crop, while enhancing its productivity. It is an amazing solution here to revolutionize the entire farming industry. JOIN US NOW.
As oppose to the common belief that farmers irrigate fields, what they actually do is irrigate the main root system of the crops, or as close to it as they can get with the basic method of trial and error. The best of farmers, the ones with the key senses and sometimes academic knowledge, are capable of making this educated guess and hit the mark approximately one time out of thirteen. In all other cases, even they fail to irrigate correctly. The 3D Irrigation Controller will solve this problem using our proprietary algorithm, it is capable of manipulating irrigation infrastructure such that the water never leaks below any specified depth.
Imagine a world, where all the knowledge of all the best agronomic facilities is available to anyone who needs it. Think of the opportunities this could present, taking the vast agricultural areas of the “Third World” countries and coupling it with the best available experts. The implications are far reaching, we could provide humanity with huge amount of food. Now, think of this opportunity and understand that a 3D Irrigation Control with autonomous capabilities of our next generation irrigation controller brings all this knowledge to the field seamlessly. It doesn’t matter if the farmer is tech-wise or if he is even literate, our system will always irrigate perfectly for him.
What is the part of our lives that has mostly changed over the last ten years? People may respond to this question differently. They may say that the healthcare has changed and our longivity was extended, others may say that the geopolitical climate has changed, yet others may refer you to the two economical crises that have hit the world. In our opinion, the thing that has changed the most in the world is our connectivity. Not only we are able to get any information we want, we are also able to get it any time, anywhere. By this point we are almost expecting to be connected, and if we lose the connection at some point, we feel like we lost our touch with the world. There are professionals that live without such connectivity at the main place of their business everyday. Since most of our connectivity is based on the GSM network (Cellular Phones), it is limited to the places where it’s economically viable to place a GSM antenna. In other words, where there are enough people to make the installation of such antenna worthwhile. Unfortunately, in the fields, where our food grows, it’s economically unwise to provide cellular service. This is why, we at Tevatronic are developing a network, a system, a set of products that will let us take the connectivity of our devices into the place of our customers business. The protocols and the hardware we use, were selected by us for the purpose of being as easy as possible to use and develop for.
