At Vinduino we build the future of agriculture technology and increase optimized usage of scarce resources, Vinduino helps agriculture communities to better manage irrigation through open source and affordable water-saving technology.
Traditional farming practices are not sufficient for meeting the new challenges of climate change. According to industry experts, precision irrigation has the potential to increase global crop yields by at least 10% – and in some areas by up to 80% – while reducing water consumption by up to 50%.
The Vinduino station is designed for continuous unattended operation in the field. It is powered by a solar panel, and an integrated battery charger maintains the battery at a fully charged state. This ensures full operation at night and during periods with dense cloud cover. The battery state-of-charge can be monitored remotely.
