Center-pivot irrigation

Center-pivot irrigation (sometimes called central pivot irrigation), also called water-wheel and circle irrigation, is a method of crop irrigation in which equipment rotates around a pivot and crops are watered with sprinklers.

Benefits

Center-pivot irrigation uses less labor than many other surface irrigation methods, such as furrow irrigation.It also has lower labor costs than ground-irrigation techniques that require digging of channels. Also, center-pivot irrigation can reduce the amount of soil tillage. Therefore, it helps reduce water runoff and soil erosion that can occur with ground irrigation.Less tillage also encourages more organic materials and crop residue to decompose back into the soil. It also reduces soil compaction.

 

Drip Irrigation System

Advantages: Low costs and operating on very low-pressure systems, such as gravity flow drip systems fed by water from rain barrels.

  • Maximum use of available water.
  • No water being available to weeds.
  • Maximum crop yield.
  • High efficiency in the use of fertilizers.
  • Less weed growth and restricts population of potential hosts.
  • Low labour and relatively low operation cost.
  • No soil erosion.

Benefits Of Drones In Agriculture

The benefits of drones in agriculture are numerous, it is one of the technologies that is driving precision agriculture. Precision agriculture is the science of improving efficiency, productivity, crop yield and profitability through the use of technology. According to analysts, drones in agriculture will be worth a massive $5 billion by the end of 2025.

Our State of the Art Drones

Multispectral camera array: The P4 Multispectral Drone uses one RGB camera and a 5-camera multispectral array that captures Blue, Green, Red, Red Edge, and Near-Infrared bands. These sensors can give statistics on plant count, height, leaf area, canopy cover, and vigor, as well as insights on how much fertilizers and/or water specific plants need, empowering farm owners and agriculture professionals to get maximum yield while minimizing wasted resources. All cameras are 2MP with a global shutter and stabilized on a 3-axis gimbal.

On top of the drone is a built-in sunlight sensor that captures solar irradiance, ensuring the accuracy and consistency of data collected during different times of the day. The advanced variability analysis made possible by the P4 Multispectral is also useful for environmental scientists in monitoring research and development results.
