Goals

The overall objective of the Plan is to develop and promote the adoption by farms of rational irrigation and fertigation practices for horticultural and fruit species based on the use of decision support systems (DSS) and advanced proximal sensors, in open field and protected crops.

Thus enabling a reduction in pollutant releases and better adaptation of agricultural cropping systems to climate change as well as integrating the control of telluric adversities with low-impact formulations.
