With Zero Level irrigation technology we reduce our water consumption by 30%.
The Zero Level system consists of flattening the plots to be irrigated, leaving a minimum slope between each plot. In this way, we are able to irrigate each sector of the lot more efficiently, and at the same time reduce water consumption by 30 % compared to traditional methodology. Likewise, we reduce the energy consumption required for irrigation.
We better preserve this important natural resource, and at the same time we are more accurate throughout the lot.
One of our keys is to combine zero-level irrigation with the use of modern technology.
We use drones, sensors, satellite imagery and digital platforms for a more efficient and sustainable irrigation management.
We have implemented electronic sheet sensors, which show us in real time the level of the water sheet, thus achieving better management of the resource.
First estimates of
We have calculated Water Footprint based on the Water Footprint Network (WFP) methodology in one of our fields.
We have obtained a footprint of 1.48 m3 of water per kg of rice produced, in line with our usual estimates.
