Planters Montalat is an agricultural holding composed of several greenhouses located in the province of Girona (Catalunya) dedicated to the cultivation of plants and trees that are watered through irrigation trains.
In this case, there are four problems to which solution should be given in order to have an effective irrigation system and adequate to installations.
While studying the case, from ITC there are considered two solutions aimed to respond to the two main conflicts: the variation in flow rate and fertilizer, and the lack of electricity.
To solve the complications that result from the constant variation in the flow, it is installed an irrigation and fertigation controller Water Controller 3000 with a dosing pump Multifertic regulated through a frequency inverter and servos, and pH control through a Dositec MA pump. The pump Multifertic with servos provides a lot of versatility as it allows changing dosing flow simultaneously with the servo (stroke adjustment) and with the inverter (changing speed). This enables very large flow dosing variations that adapt perfectly to the currently needs and the future ones. Also, with Water Controller 3000, there are solved the needs in different fertilizer formulas, depending on each crop.
Regarding the electricity, the same Water Controller 3000 automates the power of a generator that will feed the pump unit to start each irrigation cycle.
High performances of Water Controller 3000 allow Montalat doing a remote real-time monitoring of the evolution of irrigation through web. In www.itc-cloud-manager.com can be analyzed and edited irrigation scheduling, checked daily tasks and automatically get monthly consumption reports and historical readings of pH, electrical conductivity, pressure, alarms, etc.
