First Egyptian agriculture weather station made in Egypt by MSA graduates from faculty of Engineering through their start up company “short circuit design co “ ,under supervision of Dr Said Mabrouk with effective and competitive cost lower than the foreign stations by 60 % , this stations is used for measuring different parameters for weather and soil as temp , humidity , wind speed , wind direction , soil temp , soil moisture , EC , soil salenty and other parameter as needed , these parameters are sent on local server , web server ,or cloud as the clients need , many applications can be done on the data sent for diseases forecasting, calculating the Eto which indicates the water quantity required for irrigation , Fertilization status , affect and many different applications can be done for smart agriculture .
As red palm weevils is huge problem in agriculture that affect the palm tree in Egypt and most of countries, Team from MSA graduate under the support of TTO has developed a device using safe electromagnetic waves to get rid of the weevils instead of using chemicals that is very harmful to the tree and the device has proved its success by testing it in many farms and analysis for the results in red palm weevils research center.
Due to the million and half Fadden’s National project’s needs, Egypt plans to have monitoring network for the water level and quality for all water wells to save the wasted water and control the overdraft usage . Therefore team of faculty of Engineering graduates with the support of TTO have developed prototype for water well monitoring and control system that monitor the water level and send these real time data to the central station and send warning in case of excessive usage of water ,also it can be remotely controlled.
The system has been tested in the ministry of irrigation by the MSA graduates team and the technical team from the ministry, the results was incredible that the system accuracy was better than the foreign systems. And the ministry accept to start pilot project to develop four systems made by MSA .
Water scarcity on of the most important challenge in Egypt nowadays , TTO office support devolping Smart Application called IRWI for water resources smart management in Egypt by helping the Egyptian farmers to know how much to irrigate and when to irrigate according to the planted crops and locations ,also IRWI provides the farmer by the weather parameters ,harvesting date ,crop health , and the season statistics with user friendly mobile application .
