Meet the New and Improved Israeli Irrigation System

In order to advance the agriculture industry and new techniques for it, the Agriculture Ministry is marketing a digital irrigation system that will give vintners (wine merchants) accurate data and efficient tools to grow high-quality grapes.

This system tells farmers how much water to use based on the most accurate weather information, and will save growers unnecessary water costs while preventing produce damage.

A simple web interface allows wine producers and amateur grape growers to use data from the Ministry’s own weather stations and is tailored to gather data based on conditions in each area. This accuracy aims to prevent wasting water.

The system sends WhatsApp alerts to the vintners and connects directly to the irrigation systems to order the precise amount of water. Growers enter data such as location, grape varieties, desired level of wine quality, and the number of dunams.

Also, the grower will provide the frequent watering frequency every day, every week, and even every two weeks. All this data will be stored in the system. (JPost / VFI News)
