Climate-smart irrigation of field crops

The ClimField project aims at developing and implementing two geo-information services using computer and mobile technology as well as modern irrigation equipment: some irrigation recommendations providing information whether to irrigate fields and on quantity of water to be used, and an indication of fields' parcels/areas with the greatest demand for water (spatial optimisation of irrigation). The services mainly target farmers and field crops producers. The services use Earth Observation and GNSS. The multispectral Earth Observation data (low and high resolution) will be applied as input for models calculating water demand of plants as well as for monitoring the response of crops to water deficits. The developed application for smartphones will use GNSS to locate users on the field and allow to perform irrigation more efficiently in place and time.
