Mottech China under the management of Yoni Scharf took part in this project and installed IRRinet ACE unit, Piccolo XR wireless terminals, a weather station, soil moisture sensors and fertilization table. The system is hosted on Mottech’s ICC PRO 5 server in China, and it is operated via the ICC PRO smartphone app as well as on the farm’s computers.
In the words of the farm owner, Mr. Luo: “The system allows us to manage our irrigation in a smart and cost-effective manner, taking into consideration the quantities of water and fertilizer required on a precise, crop-by-crop basis. Aside from the significant savings in water and fertilizer, the IRRInet system will increase the farm’s yield.”
