Therefore we aim to map the crop water status using remote sensing from drones and satellites, to better tune the irrigation scheduling to the crop water demand.In this way we want to increase the likelihood of stable harvests in a changing climate, which will also increase the financial resilience of local farms.
Rice remote monitoring: climatechange resilience and agronomical management practices for regional adaptation
Main research questionWhat does the existing scientific literature teach us about the role of soil management on hydrological and biological soil functions and the resilience of crop production to climatechange within specific pedo-climatic contexts? We studied this in the CLIMASOMA project, a project within EJP SOIL.
Climatechange adaptation through soil and crop management (CLIMASOMA): synthesis and ways forward
How can a farmer guard against climatechange? To answer that question, Sarah Garré, researcher at ILVO, plowed through more than 100 years of agricultural research. You can read the harvest of her research in this blog.
