Digital Agriculture Technologies for Irrigation efficiency
The DATI project is coordinated by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto per la BioEconomia and financed with 1.5 million euros within the Euro-Mediterranean, Prima 2020 program.
The objective of the project is the development of new technological solutions in the field of digital agriculture through the use of drones, satellite images, agro-meteo stations that will allow water savings of 15-20% compared to the traditional irrigation system.
Partnership: Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto per la BioEconomia (Italy), Faculté Pluridisciplinaire de Nador – Université Mohammed Premier (Morocco), University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (Portugal), Spanish National Research Council – Institute of Agricultural Sciences (Spain), Institut Agro-Montpellier (France), Consorzio di Bonifica 6 Toscana Sud (Italy), Ente Terre Regionali Toscane (Italy)
Location: Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Morocco
Start date: July 2021
Duration: 36 months
