Online Irrigation Portal

Developing an irrigation web portal to improve irrigation management, crop productivity, profitability and the efficient use of water.

By optimising irrigation management through technology, this Flagship Innovation Experiment (FIE) contributes to the efficient use of water, increases crop productivity and therefore improves both farmers’ efficiency as well as profitability. The FIE aims to achieve this by developing an irrigation web portal, on which enhanced irrigation support services are provided to farmers.

Currently, two demo sites are employed to improve irrigation management from a technical, economic and environmental point of view. To ensure the effective operation of the online irrigation service, a low-cost information infrastructure including Internet of Things (IoT) technologies is implemented. Ultimately, this results in an extensive competence catalogue for irrigated agriculture digitisation which significantly contributes to the optimisation of European agriculture.
