Summary
The focus of ALCIS is the irrigation management of agricultural crops. The goal is to develop a cost-effective sensor-controlled network node system for soil-plant-atmosphere measurements and its integration into an ICT framework that is GIS-based and feeds all information into a Decision Support Tool (DSS). The system will be tested, modeled and evaluated by means of comparative experimental field studies in orchards, gardens and vineyards as well as in olive stands of various European sites. The ATB is involved in various work packages with the focus on the development of the model algorithms for water stress index, yield parameters and irrigation management.
