Irrigation System Created Saving 20 percent of Water per Harvest

Neiker-Tecnalia (the Basque Institute of Agricultural Research and Development) has been working with Arson engineering company in the creation of an irrigation telecontrol system which will enable saving up to 20 % of water for each harvest, compared to traditional irrigation methods. With this technology, known as Aquarson, the programming of the irrigation shifts and the consumption of water are controlled in a centralized way, enabling a management based on hydraulic and energy criteria which increase the efficiency of use of the irrigation system.
