This story could begin just like this, but makes no sense at all without adding the fact that Lazar’s farm was not in the same city where he lived. So he decided to invent a system that could water his precious hazelnuts remotely. It took him more than two years to research, develop, and test something that was just an idea, and it would not have been possible without a friend who was a programmer. Today, he is the owner of the Smart Watering Company, which helps farmers to irrigate their farms using only a text message! Read how he did it in an interview for Youth Time magazine.
