Hi Mikhail, you are the technical manager for IRRIOT and have recently been involved in monitoring and supporting a number of customers who have started their irrigation automation for the spring.
Can you tell us a little about the different cultivations and how they differ?
– Yes, it is true that I have been involved in many installations during the spring. Everything from apple orchards, strawberry orchards and nurseries. Each cultivation is unique and the design of the irrigation systems varies – with it come different challenges, which I find extra rewarding.
IRRIOT features unique flexibility in configuring the fully automated irrigation. The irrigation can be directly controlled by sensors, registered in the IRRIOT system, or can be set for sensor control during the user defined time schedule – automatic scheduled irrigation.Read more

Automating irrigation is a success factor for all growers, until IRRIOT’s wireless system became available, these growers had to rely on cable-based systems. In theory, the cable-based systems work well, but in practice with everything that cable breakage means, they are impractical – the fact is that in many places it is strictly impossible to install with cables.
