Artificial irrigation management system

Gamota JR. s.r.o.  a subsidiary of Gamota Group, operates in various sectors including agriculture, forestry, fish farming and foreign trade. Their primary focus is the production of soybean oil and soybean expeller.

The company was established in 2011 by Mr. Antal Zsigo as a small family business. They initially engaged in the purchase and export of  agricultural products, while also integrating with small companies that provided input products (like fertilizers, chemicals etc.) and services such as fertilization, soil cultivation or harvesting.

As the company has rapidly grown, they made the  decision to invest in its further development. This continuous growth and managerial decisions to further expand have allowed them to play a pivotal role in the advancement of the Slovak agricultural industry.

As part of their expansion, the company shifted its focus on soybean cultivation, while maintaining a strong commitment to a non-GMO policy. Based on their extensive experience, they are dedicated to promoting their conviction and philosophy throughout Slovakia.

Their endeavours have led to the production of premium GMO-free virgin soybean oil (GamoSoy) and the GMO-free soybean expeller (SoyProFat).

This company is active in soya processing plant, agriculture, walnut cultivation, forestry, cultivation of freshwater fish, production of feed premixes and grain storage.

The Living Lab combines data from new sensors and scientific knowledge from databases regarding irrigation requirements of individual plants, and relevant environmental factors available on the company’s server. Based on this data, the application will assist the manager in accurately determining the appropriate irrigation dosage for specific plants.

The purpose of our technology

The objective of this Living lab is to increase the quality of work and reduce water consumption during the irrigation process. Adopting modern trends and concepts in water resource management requires an increase in knowledge, awareness and proactive measures. These elements can lead to a transformative revision of water resource management.

Various factors influence the water consumption of crops, such as soil water availability, rainfall during the growing season, stages of crop growth, crop rooting depth, and environmental conditions including sunlight, humidity, temperature, and wind speed. Prolonged water shortages can severely impede crop yield, resulting in significant negative consequences.
