Agriculture 4.0: In other words, the agriculture of the future will have to consider a number of factors that are contributing in changing the concept of the production of goods across the planet. Changing climate conditions are making the farming trade increasingly difficult and, at the same time, a new-found environmental awareness is making his way in both consumers and producers. The planet, exhausted by years of neglect and indiscriminate exploitation, needs nowadays to regain its balance to continue to guarantee us the resources and raw materials that, until now, has allowed us to prosper as a human species.
Intensive does not mean harmful
The need for food, and therefore agricultural products, is constantly increasing today as in the recent past. The answer to this need, granted by the technological possibilities of the past, has been an intensive agriculture that, through the exploitation of the soil, of large quantities of water and chemicals, allowed producing at the loss, often, of the health of the planet. Today it is no longer like this, the possibilities granted by the technology of agriculture 4.0 allow us to cultivate at the same time intensive and beneficial for the environment and Idromeccanica Lucchini, always at the avangarde in research, masters these technologies in its greenhouses.
To the conquer of the elements
Idromeccanica Lucchini has developed greenhouses equipped with high-tech tools to facilitate agricultural production by improving its quality and quantity and, at the same time, protect the environment. As always, Lucchini Guidelines focus on the health of the plant and closeness to the world of horticulturists, to provide a service which is a real consulting support to protect the farmer. Therefore, not only reliable and safe products, but also a real support, calibrated on every single experience, to maximize the performance of Idromeccanica Lucchini plants to specific needs. Lucchini 4.0 technology focuses on the three most important resources:
Water is certainly the most precious resource on the planet and plants need water to thrive. Idromeccanica Lucchini tools allow saving this element, using it in the right amount without unnecessary waste. The remote control of the culture environment, allows you to constantly monitor the health of plants through a series of sensors that allow the grower wisely using water in times, ways and most useful phases to the cycle of the plant, adding it, when necessary, the right nutrients. Also the control of the climate and humidity of the greenhouse contributes to the well-being of the plant and to prevent it from becoming dehydrated.
Light is the fundamental element of life and the greenhouses of Idromeccanica Lucchini are equipped with specific systems for the management of this resource in agriculture 4.0. Not only managing the amount of natural light and selecting the best light spectrum through filters and plastic films, but also producing artificial light that can be optimized for any type of cultivation.
Time is the key dimension of our existence, a dimension that always seems to flow too quickly. For this reason Idromeccanica Lucchini has developed complex systems of control and management of greenhouses, which allow a considerable saving of time. The control, also by remote, allows to interface at any time with the instruments that operate in the greenhouse, so as to have always monitored and optimized the progress of the harvest.
