Development of an intelligent digital tool for precision agriculture
In the context of water scarcity and climate change, it is vital to seek solutions. Among them, the recovery of nutrients through the use of reclaimed water for agricultural irrigation stands out, which becomes an alternative that helps preserve available water resources.
Achieving a reduction in environmental impact and creating a more sustainable circular economy system is the objective pursued by the European project P2GreeN. And it is that this initiative revolves around the principle of the 3Rs: “Reduce, Reuse, Recover”, since the main purpose of this European project is to test the application of biofertilizers generated from urban wastewater and organic solid waste in agriculture. Specifically, in the case of the Spanish pilot, the application of reclaimed water in the irrigation of avocados and mangoes is being investigated.
Recently, Bioazul, Trops, Cetaqua Andalucía, AgriSmart Data and Axaragua, the partners of the Spanish pilot, organized a workshop to address the challenges and needs in La Axarquía. In addition, during this conference, the potential of reclaimed water for the irrigation of subtropical fruits was reported, as well as the development of an intelligent digital tool for precision agriculture.
