The ideal solution for covering large agricultural areas
The IRMA_SYS decision support system has been operating and continuously improving since 2015, having become an advanced smart irrigation system which, however, remains simple to use.
Based on internationally recognized models for calculating crop water requirements
It is the ideal solution for immediate coverage of large agricultural areas without requiring the installation of equipment in the field.
Utilization of measurements
It can utilize telemetry data from agro-meteorological stations and flowmeters.
Daily scale results
Calculation of daily water requirements taking into account parameters of soil, cultivation, and irrigation practices.
Services for Land Reclamation Organizations
Consolidated data for all the agricultural plots of an area for managers of large estates and land reclamation organizations
Documentation of irrigation decisions in organic and integrated management systems and indications for environmental protection.
Detailed irrigation data enable farmers, agronomists, and researchers to evaluate the system and optimize yields.
Simple to use
It provides immediate, easy-to-understand recommendations on when to irrigate and how much water should be used.
IRMA_SYS already covers more than 50000 hectares of crops and is an ideal choice for land reclamation organizations and large agricultural enterprises.

“Selected as a case study and best practice by the ITU and the FAO”
Having its roots in a pilot application of 2008, and using open source code components that were developed by EU funded projects, IRMASYS has evolved to a complex system with a deceptively simple user interface.
Behind the scenes, meteorological stations upload their data to openmeteo.org and weather forecasts are made in openweathermap.org.
IRMASYS receives this data and performs aggregation and spatial integration, and calculates each field using state-of-the-art evaporation and soil water balance models.
