Technology at the service of rionegrin production

Rionegrino entrepreneurs managed to adapt a new technology to the drip irrigation system, which also allows the fertilization of plants.

La tecnología al servicio de la producción rionegrina

Technology is advanced in all areas and fruit farming is one of them. Every season, new technical tools are available to make the production circuit more efficient in this sector. For a decade, many producers have used the machined microdrip irrigation system.

To this technology, a group of professionals from the city Villa Regina (Rio Negro) added a   system for automating plant fertilization   . This requires the adaptation of some new modules to irrigation systems.

  About the technological project  

The   SAF 6 300   is an automated fertilization system that   allows to cover 6 hectares and the use of 3 tanks   . Developed by engineers Gabriel Poli, Martín Brunello and Javier Rossi, the automated fertilization system has been operating for a year in the farm of one of them. In the future, they hope to be able to place the products in other areas of the province of Río Negro.

“The important thing in this team is that   allows to adapt to any automatic irrigation system that is already in place.   It has as an advantage that it is very easy to use, it only requires a quick training,” said the professionals.

They explained that the system is coupled with drip equipment, allowing to take advantage of this resource to inject fertilizers into plantations. “This team   makes fertilization more efficient   , the stress of the plant is avoided and resources are optimized and costs are reduced,” they emphasized.

Rossi, Poli and Brunello noted that “with mechanized systems, every day   is given the just water that the plant needs   . In addition, the nutrients required by each plantation are provided according to the phenological moment it is located and the type of fruit being produced.   Can be sectorized   to give nutrients in the proportion corresponding to whether it is a planting of apples or pears, whether it is peach or other variety of carozo”, they concluded.
