Viridix and Talgil automate full irrigation cycle

The new solution allows farmers to define irrigation plans and make sure each plot gets the right amount of water.

Viridix, a developer of data driven precision irrigation systems, and Talgil, a manufacturer of professional irrigation controllers, announced a partnership that provides farmers with an integrated precision irrigation solution. This solution is to allows farmers to automate the full irrigation cycle from defining irrigation plans to making sure each plot gets the right amount of water.

Sensors monitor soil moisture

The new solution is to allow farmers to define and implement an irrigation protocol that delivers their production goal. Viridix’s sensors constantly monitor soil moisture at varying ground depths. The system analyses this data to calculate required irrigation volume and timing, and automatically adjusts the irrigation plan.

The Talgil irrigation control system then executes the plan to provide plants with just the right amount of water. The Talgil irrigation controllers are to ensure that no matter how many plots a grower cultivates, each one receives the exact amount of water it needs.

Close the precision irrigation loop

“Viridix and Talgil are a natural fit,” said Tal Maor, Viridix CEO. “Both companies leverage advanced technology to deliver high impact with minimal hassle, and it makes total sense to create a joint offering that delivers greater value than each system separately. Through this collaboration we are able to close the precision irrigation loop and offer growers the advanced level of automation they need to meet their production goals in an efficient and sustainable manner.”

According to Yosee Ochman, Deputy General Manager at Talgil, “The collaboration with Viridix adds another important dimension to the value we deliver to our customers: data. Now our customers no longer have to manually calculate irrigation plans for different plots, or manually adjust them for changing weather conditions. Viridix provides precise and highly granular irrigation prescriptions implemented across plots. Real time soil water-potential data also helps close the operational loop and ensure water goes where it should.”
