Precision Irrigation for Growers
Precision irrigation with Lumo allows growers to deliver the exact amount of water they want to their crops, resulting in less waste, better distribution uniformity (DU) and improved quality.
Powered by Lumo’s Smart Irrigation Valve
Built-in Flow Monitoring
How Precision Irrigation with Lumo Works
Schedule irrigations from Lumo’s intuitive software by inputting the desired volume of water
Lumo will execute irrigations automatically and track water flow in real-time
When desired volume of water is reached, Lumo will automatically stop the irrigation
Precision Irrigation Benefits
Boost your yields, optimize water usage and save money by taking control of exactly when and how much you irrigate.
Volume Based Irrigation Scheduling
Run irrigations based on volume of water, not length of time. When Lumo records the desired volume of water, it will close the valve, giving you precision control over your irrigations.
Detect Catastrophic Leaks

Precision Irrigation Frequently Asked Questions
What is precision irrigation?
Precision irrigation is an irrigation method that uses technology to apply water and nutrients to crops in a precise and efficient manner. It involves using sensors, data analysis, and automated systems to ensure that crops receive the exact amount of water and nutrients they need, at the right time and in the right place.
What are the benefits of precision irrigation?
Precision irrigation offers several benefits, including increased crop yields, reduced water usage, improved nutrient management, and better overall plant health. It can also save farmers time and money, reduce environmental impact, and help address water scarcity issues.
How does precision irrigation save water?
Precision irrigation saves water by optimizing water use. With sensors that collect data on water usage, farmers can avoid overwatering and underwatering, and apply water only when and where it is needed. This can help reduce water usage by up to 30%, compared to traditional irrigation methods.
What types of crops benefit most from precision irrigation?
Precision irrigation can benefit a wide range of crops, but it is particularly useful for crops that are sensitive to water stress or that require precise amounts of water and nutrients. Examples include fruits and vegetables, turfgrass, and high-value crops such as grapes and almonds.
What are the challenges of implementing precision irrigation?
Traditionally, the main challenges of implementing precision irrigation systems were the cost of technology and equipment, the need for specialized knowledge and training, and the complexity of managing data and systems, however, Lumo has made this technology affordable and accessible to most growers.
