๐Ÿ’ง The Sicilian Region is taking action against water scarcity and climate change with the pilot project IRRIGOPTIMALยฎ

Last April the Sicilian Region asked the government to deal with with extraordinary powers and means the emergency situation arising following the serious water deficit crisis underway in the regional territory. The Italian Government has therefore decided on a national state of emergency for 12 months.

๐ŸŒThe Island, in fact, is affected by a long period of drought, caused both by the exceptional scarcity of of rainfall in the last autumn and winter seasons, both by the temperatures recorded more higher than average, which led, among other things, to a significant reduction in surface water outflows, as well as failure to recharge the aquifers.

๐ŸŒฑExperimentation is started in May at some important local agricultural companies that made their land available for the experimentation. At the Arcoria farm near Paternò Monitoring is underway on two different crops (tomatoes and oranges) while monitoring of citrus groves is underway at the Ialuna Agricultural Company in Mineo.

๐ŸŒฑ Public laboratory for Agriculture 4.0: technological installation for the Municipality of Acireale on 9 May

Among the flowerbeds of the convent of the Philippine Fathers, an example of monitoring urban green areas: practical case of application of Artificial Intelligence.

๐Ÿ“† The public event dedicated to the "Laboratory for Agriculture 4.0" dedicated in particular to the students .

The event closes a first cycle of training meetings open to citizens and dedicated to the most interested sector categories, organized by the @GAL Terre di Aci and Wes Trade and also partially recognized in terms of professional training credits by the @Ordine dei Doctors Agronomists and Forestry Doctors of the province of Catania.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿซ The public laboratory on day 9 will also offer a qualified opportunity to showcase good practices dedicated to the world of agriculture, which is both subject to risks and important new opportunities for innovation. Specifically, an empirical demonstration offered to the Municipality of Acireale which will allow it to benefit from the innovations in the sector offered by the IRRIGOPTIMAL® technology, an integrated system for precision agriculture based on algorithms for predicting the optimal water requirement of the soil and consequent optimization of the 'irrigation.

๐Ÿƒ The installation of the IRRIGOPTIMAL® integrated system for the Municipality of Acireale will constitute an example of monitoring of urban green areas and will consist of sharing a practical case on the application of Artificial Intelligence in the management of gardens and green areas, so as to offer suggestions and strategies to the public institution.

On this occasion, among the flowerbeds of the convent, guests will be the students of three classes of the Mazzei Agricultural Institute of Giarre - IISS Mazzei-Sabin, Alessio Bucaioni, CEO of Wes Trade, Daniele ROSA, co-founder of the same company, and the institutional representatives of the Municipality of Acireale.

Don't miss it, we are waiting for you!

๐Ÿ“… We are excited to share that on 23 and 24 April 2024 our CEO Alessio Bucaioni and the co-founder of Wes Trade, Daniele ROSA, were invited to take a speech on the essential role of Artificial Intelligence applied to Agriculture at the EXPO GREENTECH event in collaboration with our partner Indutronica del Caribe and show the successful case of IRRIGOPTIMAL® as powerful for sustainable agriculture. WEST and Indutronica exhibited in these days in a joint boot presenting to the numerous visitors IRRIGOPTIMAL® joint program for COLOMBIA.

๐Ÿ–ฅ Alessio Bucaioni and Alberto Manotas, CEO of Indutronica brilliantly illustrated the crucial role of technology, especially artificial intelligence, in the agricultural sector on a very exciting joint presentation. In particular, they presented IRRIGOPTIMAL®, our revolutionary integrated system and how through it farmers can optimize agricultural resources, reducing water consumption, improving disease monitoring and pest control.

๐Ÿ’ฌ "I am very proud to have been invited to this important international event in LATAM to present our achievements in the Agriculture digitalization and how our joint program with Indutronica to deploy IRRIGOPTIMAL® in Colombia captured the interest. I was particularly impressed by the appreciation given to the IRRIGOPTIMAL® solution which is a powerful lever to transform the agricultural sector, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this green revolution," says Alessio Bucaioni.

๐ŸŒพ We are excited to contribute to the transformation of the Colombian agricultural sector towards more sustainable and efficient practices. Follow us to stay updated on all our initiatives and discover how technology can make agriculture more sustainable!
