Irrigation Reference to Enhanced Yield

Source in Arabic: ENACT Case Study - Irrigation Reference Enhance Yield. Tunisia

“IREY - Irrigation” application is a new approach based on modern technology to enhance the efficiency of irrigation water use. The application is based on accurate climate data from remote sensing technology, which contributes to determining irrigation quantities at the appropriate time and place. The application relies on a database that includes information on climate, soil, and plants, and is based on the water budget model, which takes into account water sources such as storage in the soil, rainwater, and irrigation, and water consumption such as evaporation, transpiration, excess drainage, and disposal.
