Research activities
The main activities will concern the use of agro-hydrological models for the estimation of the crop water needs and for irrigation planning and management at different scales in order to increase the efficiency of water use. Innovative technologies, like remote sensing, will be used to estimate the water needs at district scale.
The experimental activity will be carried out at the district scale with a calibration at farm level within the province of Bologna. It will include the acquisition of: environmental information, agro-environmental variable, measures of irrigation volumes, as well as data processing, images and results, the use of software (GIS), the drafting of reports and scientific publications.
