We are worried about the fate of our land.
Revotree is a young company aiming to the ambitious dream of sustainable agriculture.
Thanks to this approach, the team, made up mainly of former students of the Politecnico di Milano, has rolled up its sleeves to create a first tool that could easily integrate with the farmers' habits and provide an indispensable support to the present day.
The attention goes finally to the consumption of resources and the optimization of processes through technology.
To grow, you need to plant a seed. We started from there, from the apricot trees of an orchard in the Basilicata hinterland. Dry land, endless fields, constant need to monitor when and how much to irrigate the land.
And a simple curiosity: "Daddy, how do you decide when to water?" Asks Cosimo in that sultry March of a couple of years ago, while walking among the trees.
His answer: "Simple, every day I check the weather on TV, then I come into the orchard and take some soil in my hands and control how wet it is." And then? "And then I open the water for a few hours!".
Was not enough for us.
