Vinduino, a wine grower's water saving project

If you want to learn about saving water, talk to a farmer. California farmers, including myself, voluntarily aim to reduce agricultural water consumption by 25%. This reduction (25% of 42 million acre feet/year) is more than the annual urban water use (8 million acre feet/year), much more effective than any residential water reduction can achieve. The Vinduino project (Vineyard + Arduino) started out of necessity to better manage irrigation in my Southern California vineyard. In order to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the Vinduino project is open source, affordable, and easy to build. “
