There is a need for technologies that increase water use efficiency and make additional (non-conventional) water sources available for fertirrigation, thereby decreasing water scarcity and the discharge of water and nutrients to the environment. In this sense, one of the main aims of PRECIMED is to optimise the sustainability of agriculture by using Precision Irrigation techniques, adopting and implementing new water and nutrient management practices.
PRECIMED will be the development, validation and transfer of a data driven irrigation management system, in order to improve Water and Nutrient Use Efficiency (WUE and NUE respectively) in the Mediterranean region, by integrating the knowledge about fertilizers and irrigation water management with Information Communication Technologies (ICTs).
PRECIMED will provide knowledge, know-how and tools related to efficient and intelligent applications to aid fertirrigation control.
PRECIMED will be the close involvement of researchers, end-users (farmers) and other stakeholders in a participatory approach, from the EU Mediterranean and non-EU Mediterranean countries, to build capacity and support innovation in precision irrigated agriculture.
PRECIMED project will research, develop and validate a Standards-based Decision Support System (DSS) including Irrigation/Fertirrigation Models for a massive analysis of real-time crop and meteorological status data to improve the efficient use of water, nutrients and energy.
