Proxima Systems technology automates and makes irrigation more cost-effective and efficient for hundreds of agricultural companies in 18 countries across three continents.
Digitalization and the use of technology are present in practically all human activities. Proxima Systems has focused on applying them to the optimization of agricultural irrigation operations. Companies all over the world benefit daily from the technological developments of this corporation.
For any agricultural company, agricultural irrigation is a critical operation that consumes a large amount of money, energy, water and human resources. Crop profitability depends to a large extent on an efficient irrigation strategy and its correct execution.
Obtaining maximum profitability at minimum cost requires continuous attention to detail at all stages of the irrigation process:
- power generation (for pumping with generators or solar systems)
- continuous regulation of the pumps to the optimum pressure to avoid energy wasting
- accurate dosage of fertilizers in the water
- application of the exact amount of needed water on each surface unit.
To close the loop, the automatic measurement, recording and analysis of the level of soil moisture at different depths allows to keep the whole process at the optimum point: without stressing the plants or losing water that seeps below the level at which the roots are able to benefit from it.
As a result of R&D in the above-mentioned areas, Proxima Systems has on the market a unified tool for the management and automation of all stages of irrigation operations, no matter how complex they may be.
Hundreds of agricultural companies in Canada, USA, Mexico, Chile, Portugal, Spain, Egypt, Russia, etc., etc., use their technology to irrigate hundreds of thousands of hectares of corn, sugar beets, vegetables, fruits, rapeseed, fodder, which produce food for many millions of people and livestock
Opinions of some users of Proxima Systems’ Irrigation technology:
“We did run the pivot called ‘marathon’ last week and iTrack worked awesome on that one and was so handy to view and make sure it was operating without actually going to the field. Worked great!”
Jeff, Altoba Farms, Canadá
“The application is very simple. It has been successfully used by low-tech profiles. It is important to highlight this easy usability, it makes it possible for anyone to control irrigation, which provides a lot of flexibility.” “It facilitates the work, allows us to irrigate at more economical hours (usually at night) and reduce the time spent on irrigation tasks.”
Héctor Muñoz, Irrigation manager at PLANASA, Spain
Its CEO outlines more than a decade of work developing technological products:
“For fifteen years, we have been developing technology (electronics and software) that, among other applications, simplifies and improves the accuracy of agricultural irrigation. We are proud to help agricultural companies around the world – some of them with farms of several thousands of hectares – to get the most out of their irrigation systems.”
