Rationalization of Water Use

Perceiving the importance of irrigation water and to conserve this critical element, Nadec made huge efforts to rationalization water consumption in its various projects summarized as follows:

  • Assessment of the plant water needs using modern technologies (Enviroscan system, smart irrigation system and Dacom Plus System).
  • Use of drip irrigation system for the second season in the olive, potatoes and corn crops. The experience succeeded in reducing the consumption per hectare of water by approximately 30%. Not only this, the production rates per hectare rose by 15%. Success of this system is motivation for Nadec to expand its application in all projects of the company.
  • Nadec continues the application of state of the art modern systems and technologies in rationalization of water and fertilizers, such as DACOM which was generalized in all projects of the company. This system produces early alarm to the crops department and measures the quantities of additional water and link them to the weather conditions and plant needs. In addition, it predicts the occurrence of parasite diseases through accurate measurements of the weather conditions.
