Reasoned irrigation management as a new frontier

"For us, managing irrigation in a rational and digital manner represents a primary objective to save water and nutrients and improve yields as well as quality," reports Chistopher Bernardi from Bernardi Ortofrutta (Rimini) during a technical day with local suppliers.

"Azienda agricola Bernardi coves 110 hectares of brassicas, fennel, melons and baby seedless watermelons. We started implementing zero residue procedures a couple of years ago with excellent results," explained agronomist Francesco Fabbri.

To obtain zero residues and for a more correct agronomic management in general, Bernardi is evolving towards the digital management of irrigation.

"Experience alone is no longer enough, as objective data are needed to supply water when needed, increasing yields and diminishing waste and, therefore, costs. First of all, the various crops are equipped with probes. By crossing the data on water availability and those coming from the weather station, the software decides on irrigation times, which can be different also when it comes to a same crop in different areas." 

Not all companies have reached this level, each is following its own path. That is why Bernardi has organized the meeting, to spread the knowledge and lead the way for producers who are less technology-savvy. 

"Such 4.0 management is also useful to convey the right nutrients during fertigation. By balancing everything, we can limit the spreading of diseases, reduce chemical interventions and facilitate the achievement of zero residues."
