Modern-day technology, such as that offered by LemSystems, allows for a sophisticated and integrated telemetric system to be installed on the farm. This system can measure water levels and usage from the wells through all the irrigation canals and all other processes. LemSystems has been operating in Chile for around a decade and counts many of the biggest fruit production companies among check its customers. Berrios said there tends to be a stronger demand for its solution for high-value crops, such as avocados, blueberries, citrus, cherries, and walnuts. "We have different lines of business to address the whole cycle of water on farms: monitoring the source of water in the deep wells; monitoring the plants, its soils and water needs; wireless valves across the whole farm to measure the water pressure, and centralized remote control of the whole system," he said. "All this allows us to accurately monitor and control the consumption and application of water across a whole farm, according to what is needed and when." Berrios explained that LemSystem's solutions are based on two concepts - the Internet of Things (IoT), which allows all the various systems to communicate with each other and inform the grower in real-time of what's happening, and artificial intelligence, which allows the system to make decisions independently based on the data it collects. He said that crop productivity can be significantly improved just by irrigating correctly, with growers seeing on average a 10 percent increase in yields. In addition, growers can save up to around 30 percent on water consumption, lowering their costs, making them more sustainable, and allowing them to plant more. Speaking about the water crisis that is severely impacting the Chilean agricultural industry, Berrios emphasized that what is lacking in the country is good water management.
