Precision Irrigation in nursery using wireless tensiometer

Start Date: 01/04/2013 | End Date: 31/03/2018

In this project we have evaluated a new generation of wireless tensiometer that measures the water available to the plant and allows precise irrigation control. We have established the best clustering practices based on the water needs of diverse species. We have also evaluated the best irrigation strategies in a commercial setting and demonstrated that we can reduce water use while maintaining an optimal growth. Overall, we propose improved practices for water management in plant nurseries.
