Water is vital for ensuring food security to the world’s population, and agriculture is the biggest consumer amounting for 70% of freshwater. The water wastages are caused mainly by leakages in distribution and irrigation systems, and in the field application methods.

The most common technique, surface irrigation wastes a high percentage of the water by wetting areas where no plants benefit from it. Localized irrigation can use water more efficiently and effectively, avoiding both under-irrigation and over-irrigation. However, in an attempt to avoid under-irrigation, farmers feed more water than is needed resulting not only to productivity losses, but also water is wasted. Therefore, technology should be developed and deployed for sensing the level of water needed by the plantation and for flowing the water to places where and when needed.

The SWAMP project addresses these issues by use of the Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, autonomous devices and other related technologies.

SmartSmart Water Distribution ManagementWater Distribution Management ((CBEC, Italy)CBEC, Italy) SWAMP 9 • Open canal based water distribution system at Po river in Reggio Emilia, Italy • Large variety of irrigation systems (surface, sprinklers, drip) and crop varieties (forage, wine, pumpkins, etc.) • Objectives to reduce water waste and energy used in pumps by advanced management practices, and to optimise the irrigation by monitoring the water balance at fields
  10. 10. SmartSmart precision irrigationprecision irrigation ((Intercrop, Spain)Intercrop, Spain) SWAMP 10 • Lettuce, endive, spinach, herbs and baby leaf farm in Murcia, Spain • Serious water scarcity area with very limited water resources • Objectives to maximise the yield per water by monitoring the plants and water balance
