What this Study Offers Our Clients:

Irrigation has long presented a challenge to farmers who seek to use water efficiently, maintain the mineral content of their soil, and optimize yield.  Therefore, it is no surprise that technological solutions have been developed in order to achieve those goals through: sensors for monitoring soil/plant moisture, systems for overseeing irrigation, and remotely operated irrigation systems. 

Alpha Brown has conducted a unique study that investigates the market potential for smart irrigation systems.

Our research is based on:

  1. An extensive survey examining the current situation of the smart irrigation market and analyzing the potential customers’ awareness of and interest in the latest technological developments.
  2. Research on irrigation systems on the market, presenting an overview of several systems
