What we are looking for
The initial challenge is to design and integrate a greenhouse structure that will be consistent with water management issues related to local conditions expressed above (scarcity, salinity).
Then from reaching maturity and being able to be planted in fields, date palms require smart precision irrigation systems that should have the double advantage to enable a more responsible and adapted water management both from a resource and quality perspective.
Subsequently, it will allow more communities to get involved and receive the benefits of date palm farming (greater yield capacity, socio-economic and environmental benefits).
The enabling of water capacities through precision smart irrigation could also be linked to energy access so I would also like to add a potential small renewable energy unit for communities that are off-grid and don't have energy capacities to power solar pumps and smart/connected irrigation systems.
Might need to integrate small renewable units
in most cases fully automated.
should integrate the different quality parameters of waters available in Senegal as well as soil quality if necessary
What we offer
Polaris Technology is a Senegalese company involved in providing environmental technologies and solutions. In the case of our project in Senegal we are operating the development and structuration of date palm farming with the Senegalese Great Green Wall Agency from the provision of selected trees to the transfer of technology and know how about farming dates.
