We help farmers to irrigate effectively

IrriWatch helps farmers and their irrigators to optimize irrigation water applications in a world of dynamical weather, soil and crop processes. The soil moisture and evapotranspiration of every pixel of 10 m x 10 m is measured daily from satellites for capturing the variabilities of key processes in space and time. Actual crop evapotranspiration from IrriWatch-offers an alternative to the classical Kc x ET0 approach that for more than 50 years has been used for computing crop water requirements. Almost all current irrigation advisory systems are based on automated weather stations for ET0 and a tabular crop coefficient Kc. IrriWatch is going to change these simplified approximations.

Based on a recurrent data subscription system, IrriWatch provides soil moisture-based irrigation scheduling. IrriWatch is meant for on-demand irrigation systems, such as tubewells, pressurized distribution systems and canals with continuous flow. It deals with micro-irrigation and flood irrigation systems. An Irrigation App provides a suggestion for tomorrow’s irrigation schedule for every field or part of a field. A web-application shows a helicopter view of all fields from today, and the past. Today’s satellite measurement of the soil and crop status is integrated with tomorrow’s weather forecast. IrriWatch matches water supply and water demand that leads to a fair, profitable and sustainable agro-ecosystem.
