Drip Irrigation On Rice
Aim of this measure was to cultivate crop rice in marginal fields, even without water.
Diviner and meteo station use
Aim of this measure was to irrigate only when it is necessary, and in this way to avoid overuse of water.
Supplemental Irrigation Ponds
Aim was to secure emergency water supply in case when the irrigation consortium is not supplying water due to scarcity conditions.
Aim of the meaure was to obtain water of a better quality for irrigation.
Utilization Of Landraces And Evolutionary Populations
Basic thougth was to use seeds which are highly heterogeneous with a higher capacity to adapt to the specific pedoclimatic conditions.
Incentives For The Use Of A Decision Support System
Aim of the measure was to optimize the water applied for irrigation, both to save water and to increase production.
Use Of Natural Adjuvants
Aim was to protect leaves and grapes from sunburns and from high humidity, in order to guarantee high-quality grapes.
Improved Soil Management
Aim was to create favourable conditions for the living organisms of the soil as a way to create a buffer effect against biotic and abiotic stresses.

The utilization of tools installed in the field to reduce the use of water. In particular, one meteo station and 5 “Diviner” are used. “Diviner” is a tool which permit, through a computer linked to the sensors in the soil, to measure the soil moisture. The decision to irrigate is based on data obtained from […]
Storage reservoirs filled with groundwater. Wells are in an alluvial riparian aquifer with around 20 m of maximum depth. The reservoirs are at around 80 m and 150 m over the riverbed (river Acri). Water is always present in the aquifer, but pumping rates should be moderate Drip irrigation with double dripline.
