Water-saving System for Advanced Precision Agriculture (WSSPA)

Research Project Outline

A technological system for site-specific irrigation management aims to meet the need of plant growth by using a precise control technique for water resources in the rooting zone, followed by high efficiency uses of agricultural water. The system involves various technologies including precise monitoring of water content in the rooting zone, on-line real-time precision irrigation, using differences in soil water resources, re-using and recycling of water resources, and identification of soil water parameters to describe the crop needs for water, towards the development of an energy-efficient and water-saving plant factory system. The proposed system will be also applicable to water-saving agriculture in arid lands.
