FIGARO Project to Demonstrate Advanced Precision Irrigation (PI) System, Making PI Theory Applicable to Growers in Everyday Practice

The platform provides accurate recommendations on how much and when farmers should irrigate. The system is modular and flexible, so that new technologies and agronomic models can be easily integrated into the FIGARO platform, and growers can customize the system to meet their individual needs.

The FIGARO demonstrations and open field days will show both small farmers and large agricultural entities the benefits of using individualized irrigation recommendations that are more efficient and compliant with water regulation, while producing improved yield.

The FIGARO consortium is industry driven and includes 17 separate organizations from eight countries, including a number of commercial and academic leaders in the field of irrigation, which bring to the industry expertise in precise irrigation-related technologies.
