EFFIDRIP, smart irrigation system project

EFFIDRIP is a European Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project to develop a system “Ena­bling next generation com­mer­cial service-oriented, automatic irrigation management systems for high ef­fi­cient use of water, fertilizers and energy in drip irrigated tree crops” with the reference number FP7-SME-2011-2-286807. Through the “Research for the benefit of SME Association” projects, the FP7 aims at developing technical solutions to solve problems and to cover common needs of a large number of Associations of SMEs in specific sectors, such as the fruit production industry.
Starting Date: January 2012.
Duration: 3 years.
Apart from representing a new approach, the EFFIDRIP system can be ready to be applicable in the mar­ket within a short time. By providing the keys for automating the field data acquisition, decision ma­king and control process efficiently, equip­ment manufacturers and service providers will be able to ra­pid­ly develop and commercialize the system.
