“Amastuola farm already uses a decision support system based on Sholander’s chamber since 10 years. ” Piero Annese, Cantine Amastuola’s agronomist.
The Sholander’s Chamber is an evaluation and irrigation scheduling method very famous in vinicultural sector. This method is based on collecting buds that will be put into the Sholander Chamber and on reading the results. This very popular method, has a drowback: it isn’t very efficient because of farmer’s (or operators) very long job time.
“Blueaf® allowed us consolidating and semplifying our irrigation strategy: grapewine needs to be water frequently and gradually until ripening. During this phase we can apply stress conditions to improve quality rates”
Irrigation scheduling is based on data collected no longer by farmer but by a network of soil sensors and wether station, that’s why it is very important to gain access to this kind of tools in crops like grapewine onces where we need to know how and when provoke stress conditions.

We can also apply an environmental friendly managment of our company, reducing water waste and energy consumption.
