The main activities will concern the comparison of different mathematical simulation models to estimate the real irrigation needs of crops present in a territory in order to plan the management of water resources and reduce waste, considering also the monitoring of water consumptions as well as the possible use of non-conventional water resources. These decision support systems for irrigation planning will also make use of remote sensing techniques. The experimental activity will focus on districts and sub-districts, falling within the Emilia-Romagna region, managed by Water and land reclamation consortia, and will include the acquisition of data relating to the selected districts, the processing of data, images, maps in a GIS environment and results, the use of software, the preparation of reports and scientific publications.
