“The future is green, but companies must think and act in a sustainable way”.
No sector should feel excluded. That’s why “AGRI” is the system installed in all the vineyards of Tenuta Liliana in Parabita. It is the latest challenge in the field of precision agriculture of an Apulian engineering company, Apphia srl, specialising in the research and development of innovative solutions for complex systems (www.apphia.it).
AGRI is a monitoring and decision support system intended for farms, capable of implementing a management strategy for viticulture which, thanks to the use of technology, aims at improving agronomic interventions.
The system consists of a wireless network of sensors for monitoring the environmental and micro-pedoclimatic conditions of the field and a dashboard for consulting the data. All this makes it an ideal tool for mandatory integrated defense (according to the elements defined in Annex III of Directive 2009/128 /C).
In fact, AGRI implements the viticulture management strategy, thanks to complex algorithms based on agronomic models, providing risk indicators for the prevention of fungal diseases and the calculation of water requirements. Through its innovative dashboard, AGRI allows the display of information 24 hours a day, even from mobile devices, integrating weather forecasts and field vigour maps.
The data historicisation offers support to the winegrower in managing the vineyard and planning future activities and interventions, with a view to continuous improvement from the point of view of environmental impact. In essence, AGRI accompanies the winegrower in the development of sustainable viticulture both from an ecological-environmental point of view and from an economic point of view, by reducing the use of plant protection products and the conscious modulation of irrigation interventions.
