Outcome/deliverables

To combine EO, in situ measuring, hydrological models and crop models to develop operational tools to:

  1. Support Regulated Deficit Irrigation;
  2. Assess the benefits for hydrological resources at the catchment scale

Expected Impact of the Project:
Increase RDI knowledge, Irrigation water saving still improving crop productivity and quality, Quantitative link between, plot and catchment scale, Technological development on sensors, image processing and modelling, Bridging between disciplines and players (Universities, Institutes, Companies)
