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.
Objective was to collect rainwater, accumulating it where it could be useful for the plant.
Dikes, drainages and pumping systems are solid and well-known techniques in work for centuries.
As the ponds were in poor technical and biological condition, measures for improvement had to be taken.
The measures aims were to retain water in the agricultural landscape and provide habitat for native animal species.
With swales it is possible to retain the water during heavy rainfall, its infiltration into the soil and reduction of the runoff from the site.
To ensure healthy animal feed with a low cost, the cultivation of cereal sprouts is an environmentally and economically friendly practice.
As fields well equipped with drains were drying too quickly and as soon the weather became warm and dry, the solution was irrigating with a better system.
To keep water levels manageable, improving water management and reducing drought risks controlled drainage can be very good tool.
