Idyllica aims to minimize the amount of water used per tree to reduce the impact on water supplies. The water needs of a tree depend on many factors, such as climate, rainfall, soil and age of the tree. By varying watering intervals and drip rates we can promote different types of root development and tree growth.
A suite of sensors monitor soil huminidy, air temperature, air humidity and solar irridance. This data, together with weather forecasts and information about each tree from our database, allows us to optimize the amount of water dispensed.
Additionally, low cost sensors reporting over LoRaWan enable granualr insights and increased watering control.
