Meet the new and improved Israeli irrigation system
- The Jerusalem Post
In order to advance the agriculture industry and new techniques for it, the Agriculture Ministry is marketing a digital irrigation system that will give vintners (wine merchants) accurate data and efficient tools to grow high-quality grapes.
This system tells farmers how much water to use based on the most accurate weather information and will save growers unnecessary water costs while preventing produce damage.
A simple web interface allows wine producers and amateur grape growers to use data from the Ministry’s own weather stations and is tailored to gather data based on conditions in each area. This accuracy aims to prevent wasting water.
