FERtigation Irrigation DEcision Support System

Project description

The increasing food demand and decreasing water resources have created an urge to find new technologies for efficient use of water and fertiliser for agriculture. FERIDE aims to provide a technologically controlled farming environment to improve the availability and absorption of water and nutrients in the soil, resulting in a substantial increase in crop production and quality while decreasing farming costs. They will develop a European-scale network of actors to better manage logistics and implement an information system platform, allowing communication between different system actors such as farmers, fertilizer suppliers and irrigation providers.
