Water management for high and stable crop yields

Prof.ssa Giulia Vico

Monday, March, 4th
h. 10:00-11:00
Room 1.5 (Viale Risorgimento 2, Bologna)

Abstract: Irrigation is an effective way to stabilize yields in the face of variable climatic conditions, but at the cost of high and variable water requirements. A probabilistic description of the soil water balance and crop development is employed to quantify water requirements and yields and their inter-annual variability, as a function of rainfall patterns, soil and crop features. This approach is used to define optimal irrigation strategies with respect to different criteria.
