99% of the fruit in which we work is irrigation, and, more specifically, drip irrigation.
Water is a fundamental good for the production of fruit and is a scarce commodity. For this reason, the determination of the crop’s water needs as accurate as possible is an important part of our work. We use several methods or approaches for this:
1. We rely on the Network of Agrometeo Stations of the Junta de Andalucía to determine the theoretical demand for irrigation through the calculation of ETc,
2. With the physical analysis of soil and, again, the data of the Network Stations of the Junta de Andalucía, we calculate a Soil Water Balance (SWB),
