Centraline open-source LoRa per strategie di irrigazione di precisione

As part of the Agri 4.0 (PSR Trentino) and Agridigit sub-project Agrofiliere projects, open source control units were built and tested to record soil moisture at different depths and communicate information to an antenna even a few kilometres away using LoRaWan communication protocols. The information acquired, together with the weather and climate information, has enabled significantly better irrigation water management. The system is being tested in a consortium of apple producers in Trentino and in the experimental fields of CREA in Monterotondo. The application of these technologies has allowed a water saving of 380 mm of water equivalent to 66000kW for the 4 hot months of the 2019 season.
