Maximizing Drip and Micro Sprinkler Systems Efficiency through UAV (Drone), Soil Sensing Technologies & VRI


Variability management defined

Variability Management defined…..

  • Variability Management manages the variability of soils for maximum production effectiveness.

  • Variability Management identifies each different type of soil profile in a field; followed by soil profile specific management tools and recommendations. This approach aids increases in production and helps manage inputs more effectively.

  • The method of designing and managing thesystem and its irrigation is referred to as Variable Rate Irrigation.

  • Manage H2O automates the recommendation process for UAV, soil and plant based sensors.

The Problem…..

Growers are inundated with information from sensors limiting the potential scale of implementation due to management’s time limitations, technical understanding and or field operational logistics.


Variability management defined

As potential leaching, drought and limited water storage continue to tax California water supplies, Variability Management leverages existing technologies, creating greater adoption of sensors through Manage H2O Web and Mobile Applications.

The Opportunity…..

Manage H2O takes sensor data and provides a recommendation for irrigation frequencies and durations required. reducing management cost of new technology implementation.

Variable Rate Irrigation maximizes water utilized by agriculture entities, decreasing applied water by greater than 28% annually per acre in Variable Rate Irrigation Systems.


Variability management defined

MANAGE H2O is software in development to provide data driven recommendations to automate irrigation through a data modeled process for collecting, developing, designing, implementing and managing irrigation developed under Variability Management.

The Solution…..

  • Addresses limited water supplies.

  • Limits potential for leaching addressing long term concerns over ground water contamination.

  • Provides competitive advantage.

  • Improves grower profitability.

  • Conserves natural resources.

  • Provides industry solution to legislative and consumer demands.


Variability management defined

  • Startup costs of $360,000 combined with an annual operating costs of $360,000 .

  • Qualified Integrators needed – opportunity for high paying technical positions.

Economics of Variability Management

  • Potential for 1.2 million dollars in gross annual revenue on 1,200 acres of conversions monthly.

  • Creating greater than $100,000 in potential annual state tax revenue per Qualified Integrator

  • Dozens of potential areas in California requiring Qualified Integrators

The potential Market exceeds 8 million drip and micro sprinkler acres in California alone.
