We have implemented a combination of innovations with the aim of increasing the availability of irrigation water and guaranteeing a stable supply of forage:
More efficient sprinklers and drip irrigation systems that incorporate sensors to optimize water use.
Introduction of new forage species (alfalfa) that require less water.
Improvement of the forage storage systems so that it is available during the dry season.
In addition, a pilot research and innovation project has been launched to test the use of potassium polyacrylate in alfalfa cultivation. It is a hydrogel, also known as solid rain, which has the ability to retain water and therefore maintain soil moisture.
