Smart Irrigation With Autonomous Pivot Systems

Pivot systems are being transformed by companies across the country into smart irrigation machines that can grow crops autonomously. Pivot systems are equipped with sensors and cameras to detect and eliminate weeds and fertilizer.

Sometimes, the best ideas are only possible with strong partners from the agricultural sector. For example, take the partnership between a startup company and a watering center pivot  systems manufacturer.

This partnership will allow large-sized galvanized steel Pivot systems to be converted into smart-irrigation robots capable of alerting growers to crop problems and weeding and fertilizing accordingly.

Innovative advancements allow the Pivot system to operate independently. Pivot systems were originally designed to be autonomous growing machines that could use data flow.

Researchers studied the unpredictable nature of crops in controlled environments. They were able to develop systems that used the data to find solutions. The system was based on soil and climate control variables, which influenced the greenhouse effect.

The company currently works with hundreds of greenhouse operators to manage crop performance and save water through autonomous smart irrigation.

Even the smallest malfunctions can be detected by it, such as when a nozzle gets defected it must be replaced. It can also alert growers to get rid of the problems. It acts as a virtual scanner for crops. Pivot machines allow growers to evaluate the land with high accuracy.

The company plans to optimize irrigation by studying crop plans and plant stress. Farmers will be able to use smart irrigation to get the best solution. The irrigation nozzles will distribute water at a variable rate, as well as fertilizers and chemicals. Growers can use the sensorized Pivot system to identify and analyze what is going on, then take appropriate action.
