Agrifect Fertigation Control & Management March 2008 26
The Need - Filed Crops Optimize Water usages (Irrigation) Optimize Fertilization usages Improving (Quantity & Quality) yields Saving costs. Comply with agriculture standards (Eurep. GAP etc. ) Minimize detrimental environmental – Aquifer Pollution 27
The Problem Mass labor procedures (manual) aimed at meeting the “Repeatability” test. No available agronomic consultant support Analyze Test Results - knowledge gap. Many years of habit (Culture) Currently Fertigation price is not too high None Standards Bodies Enforcement 28
Agrifect Mission Delivery of a comprehensive solution An automatic Sampling, Monitoring (i. e. NO 3, EC), and Farmer Fertilization recommendation to the Precision Farming market. 29
Potential Market Crops required chemical fertigation in: Ø regular soil Øcombined media (soil and substrate) Millions of farmers worldwide 30
