Smart Plain Irrigation

The Project aims to create the MIS and GIS infrastructure of irrigation unions in a central database. It also raises decision Support mechanisms to a more productive point.

As SAMPAŞ, our basic vision is to improve existing and newly founded irrigation unions, increase their efficiency and determine what needs to be done in order to provide better service to citizens by evaluating process and needs of irrigation unions in Turkey on software automation system basis and making a comprehensive analysis study about this subject.

In this regard, a geographical based software automation system has been developed by using verbal data of irrigation unions. This automation system is supported with business intelligence solutions and mobile field applications in order to provide more efficient and faster study for decision support mechanisms.

This software automation system also provides integration with mechanical devices by adding remote cover management into the system and this made possible to offer efficiency increasing infrastructure to irrigation unions.

Instant monitoring of irrigation, remote management of channel cover systems, analysis of irrigated and unirrigated parcels

Project Objectives:
  • Creating operational maps capable of establishing Geographical Information System
  • Preventing unplanned and inefficient water distribution and planning irrigation
  • Defining irrigation field water need before irrigation season and creating planned water distribution lists by comparing with the resource
  • Making analyses in order to get more efficiency with same water amount
  • Getting humidity in soil and plant water needs and analyzing them
  • Increasing irrigation rates and efficiency
  • Making plant pattern analysis
  • Making fertilizer and curative analyses
  • Providing remote access to channel cover systems
  • Instant monitoring of irrigation operation over analysis applications
  • Making analyses of curatives and fertilizers used in irrigation fields
  • Making geographical and graphical analyses for working decision support mechanisms
Project Benefits in Terms of Irrigation Unions:
  • Instant monitoring of irrigation
  • Remote management of channel cover systems
  • Analysis of irrigated and unirrigated parcels
  • Getting irrigation rate statistics
  • Analyses of irrigated and left water amount according to years
  • Conducting annual water amount to be requested from DSI according to previous year analyses
  • Plantation rates and type analysis
  • Consultancy to farmers for increasing efficiency by making harvest and efficiency analyses
  • Curative and fertilizer analyses
  • Effect of curative and fertilizers on efficiency analyses

It targets to create MIS and GIS infrastructure of project irrigation unions in a central database and bring decision support mechanisms to a more efficient operational point.

With the establishment of MIS and GIS infrastructure, viewing different analyses over a single interface is being targeted with irrigation claims management, mapping operational maps, cover opening closing operations on the field.

With the integrated study of MIS and GIS infrastructure, a parcel based management system shall be created and claims will be analyzed for each parcel in order to control claim losses and losses related with irrigational processes. After building this infrastructure, with the remote management of cover systems of irrigation unions, reducing irrigation operational costs of irrigation operations is being targeted.

A graph may be added to project component part in the following way – maybe a different picture – showing components.

Following component qualities may be written under this graph.

Cover Systems Remote Management

This project targets to enter location based information in irrigation fields of agricultural purposed regions (parcel size, land classes, plant pattern, irrigation network, irrigation channel information, product information, irrigation information) and verbal data of people engaging in agricultural activities to computer environment, analyze these data and provide most economic use of water in low irrigational water amount periods. In this project, not only verbal data management but also integration of geographical data is discussed. It is a project, where users can take strategic decisions by creating an environment for conducting verbal and geographical analyses and evaluations for different purposes.

Moreover, thanks to this automation system, it is possible to read and analyze water level information in irrigation region and manage irrigation covers in the light of the data obtained. It is possible to update all studies made on the field to the data in the centre through mobile devices and make job assignment studies to mobile device users. Monitoring and controlling all these operations from a single centre shall make it possible for workers to conduct their works faster and in a more efficiently.

Thanks to web-based maps showing irrigated regions, unirrigated regions, water transmitting channels, instantly open covers, geographical position of the personnel on the field, target is to facilitate personnel, irrigation, cover and channel management and use time and water more efficiently.
