Naturetac Systems Launches SMS based Irrigation Automation System for remote monitoring and control of irrigation process

Naturetac Systems, a Pune based natural resource conservation technology solutions company has developed an SMS based irrigation controller which can help remotely monitor and control the irrigation process for a landscape or an agricultural land of any size, by controlling sprinklers or drip irrigation systems, to reduces water consumption significantly.

Pune, Maharashtra, January 14, 2014 /India PRwire/ -- Naturetac Systems, a Pune based natural resource conservation technology solutions company has developed an SMS based irrigation controller which can automate the irrigation process for any given landscape or an agricultural land of any size, by controlling sprinklers or drip irrigation systems. Its unique feature includes its capability to be remotely programmed, controlled and monitored by sending and receiving SMS from any regular cell phone, thus helping the land owner to constantly monitor and control the irrigation process remotely. It operates motors required to fetch the water and solenoid valves to control the flow of water to specific zones, as per the programmed sequence and schedule.

Mr. J. George, CEO of Naturetac Systems said, "Considering the fact that only fraction of irrigation that happens in India is automated, there is a huge scope for water conservation through automation. Most importantly, our solution helps farmers save water, electricity, chemicals, fertilizers, and manpower required for irrigation. We are working very closely with farmers and academic institutions to fine tune our products specific to the Indian market."

Naturetac Systems irrigation controller will hugely benefit the farmers as most of the agricultural land in India is irrigated manually and farmers have to ensure a physical presence, sometimes at odd hours, at the time of irrigation to open and close the valves.

The system is designed to operate the solenoid valves based on volume of water consumed or time based settings. It ensures that no extra drop of water is distributed more than the duration or the volume that is programmed in the system, thus resulting in huge savings of water and electricity required for irrigation. In addition to the irrigation process, the controller is designed to automate the chemigation and fertigation process and can control and monitor the flow of chemicals and fertilizers through the pipelines.

The system also highly benefits the landscape owners by empowering them to have a remote monitor and control on their landscape irrigation process. With the help of this system, they will come to know the precise water distributed for their landscape along with the time of the day when it was disbursed. They can also alter the irrigation schedule and monitor the flow of water from any part of the world wherever there is cell phone connectivity.

The Naturetac irrigation controller is primarily designed keeping the average Indian farmer in mind and the company claims that anyone who can read and type SMS and knows the process of irrigation can learn the programming of this system within few minutes. The company is planning to launch an Android application to control and monitor the entire irrigation process using a smartphone.

The product is competitively priced with an aim to reach out to an average Indian farmer and certainly comes at a much lower costs when compared with its imported counterparts.

The company at present is looking to expand the reach of this irrigation controller within and outside India through a network of dealers and distributors. It is also planning to train people in different parts of India about the product and how it can benefit an average Indian farmer, through multiple workshops. The company is looking forward to work with various "Krishi Vigyan Kendras"(KVKs) setup by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research in different parts of India and has in its roadmap a plan to setup demo sites at these locations which can be easily accessed by farmers in the nearby locations.
