Since 1998 Hydroair works in the R&D sector especially for developing complete telemetry solutions for irrigation systems with wireless control. So far R&D contacts were established mainly in cooperation with the Berlin Humboldt-University. The main current emphasis of the company’s R&D interest is the development of demand driven and environmentally friendly irrigation systems.

In this sense, safe applications of manure, biogas digestate, urine and pre-treated wastewaters used as alternative, liquid fertilizers are investigated. The company aims to enter different national and international markets for demand driven fertigation systems (combined irrigation and fertilisation).
