Development of the location-adapted fully automatic real-time process optimisation of solar-powered irrigation in Saxony-Anhalt's agriculture. The location-adapted fully automatic, real-time process optimisation of solar-powered irrigation in the regional agriculture of Saxony-Anhalt is the content of the joint IrriMode project, which is being sponsored by the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt in the context of the European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI).
The project is intended to form the basis for strengthening the competitiveness of agricultural enterprises in Saxony-Anhalt and for integrating the irrigation process even more extensively into the SMART FARMING model. Compliance with and the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive (EU WFD 2000), Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and the Fertiliser Ordinance should therefore be facilitated. This will therefore make a significant contribution to resource-efficient, sustainable agriculture.
The water demand in agriculture is to be adapted to the location and optimised fully automatically by means of a real-time process system. Thanks to this system, short-term environmental influences can be taken into consideration directly when irrigating land used for agricultural purposes. The objective of the project is yield maximisation and the minimisation of economic costs and harmful environmental impacts.
