  1. 1. AutoAgronom: Agri-Environment Science Program(a.k.a. intelitek AgriGreen)<br />
  2. 2. Green Technology Agricultural Education!!!<br /> AgriGreen is an automated plant environment controller that monitors soil conditions at the plants roots in real time and controls irrigation and fertilization with minimal human intervention.<br />
  3. 3. What Do Students Learn???<br />and environmental concepts.<br />Students investigate the effects that various parameters such as temperature, irrigation, radiation, fertilization and more, have on the plant growth process.<br />Students learn fundamental concepts of agriculture such as:<br /> irrigation, <br />fertilization, <br />soil management,<br />principles of greenhouse and landscaping design,<br />
  4. 4. Blended Learning System<br />The AgriGreen automated plant environment control system, complete with sensors, pump and irrigation pipes.<br />E-learning content: Courseware that enables anytime, anywhere, interactive computer aided instruction or self-paced study in agricultural topics.<br />Hands-on land lab learning, or<br /> Optional greenhouse.<br />
  5. 5. Sample E-learning Curriculum Content<br />
  6. 6. AutoAgronomis a Breakthrough in Green Technology For Agriculture!<br />AutoAgronom has both Commercial & Agricultural Purposes; <br />Automatically monitors and controls the exact timing and amount of fertigation (fertilization and irrigation). <br />Plus it maximizes the growth of agricultural products and automates the most important decisions facing the grower: <br />..How much to fertilize <br />..What fertilizer to use <br />..When to fertilize <br />..How much to water <br />..When to water<br />
  7. 7. As a true green technology, AgriGreen contributes to environmental sustainability by minimizing the use of water and fertilizer, conserving resources and reducing pollution. <br />
  8. 8. AgriGreen has Commercial Applications:<br />....Increases crop yield by up to 20%! <br />..Reduces the use of water and fertilizers up to 60%! <br />..Allows remote access and control over the internet!<br />
  9. 9. Commercial Producers<br />Have reported better harvests and a return of their investment within one year!<br />
  10. 10. How does AgriGreen work?<br />
  11. 11.
  12. 12. High Level STEM<br /> Using EC, pH, Nitrate and Oxygen sensors and tensiometers, AgriGreen takes samples of the root zone and checks the physical and chemical data in real-time.<br /> AgriGreen constantly calculates changes in the roots and “learns” the behavior and needs of the crop.<br />Gives immediate feedback and support to the plant. <br />
  13. 13. AgriGreen is applicable in any plant substrate, in any climate and for all types of crops. AgriGreen even monitors the climate conditions in greenhouses and other closed structures… <br />
  14. 14. Where does AgriGreen work? <br />
  15. 15. Other Applications Include…<br /> growing vegetables, <br />citrus trees, <br />spices, <br />flowers, <br />sugar cane, <br />olives and more in soil-less substrates, <br />forages (open fields), <br />orchards, and<br />greenhouses.<br />
  16. 16. Student Designed Children’s Learning Garden<br />
  17. 17. And Your Campus… Campus Becomes a Learning Lab<br />
