Knowing the level of ground water is required to clearly define the drainage problem and to ensure irrigation and fertilization processes can be carried without causing pollution and waste.
Depending on the ground water level, moisture increases with the capillarity movement from the ground water to soil profile. This saturation in soil leads plants to be without oxygen, which leads plants to dry. Therefore, the condition of soil will require drainage.
In the classical drainage concept, if the plant is not able to be deeper than the root zone, than it is attempted to drain excessive water from the roots.
After solving the drainage problem in areas with production activities such as in parks, landscape areas or in an agricultural fields, the needed irrigation water is giving to plants. However, in most regions’ plants receive their needed irrigation water from drained/undrained groundwater. Therefore, since there is no technology that can detect the amount of water needed from groundwater, excessive amount of irrigation activities can take place. This results ground water swelling thoroughly and / or mixing with the fertilizer and chemicals in the irrigation water and leads to nitrogen washing which, results a serious waste of fertilizer and groundwater contamination.
With SmartWaterLevel technology, this problem can be solved by making necessary observations. SmartWaterlevel, is able to survey catchment areas, agricultural areas and landscape areas. This smart technology allows real-time monitoring and determining the amount of water each plant consumes. Therefore, irrigation systems automatically operate in order to complete the remaining of needed amount of water of the plant with artificial intelligence.
