Searching together for ways to improve water quality
ILVO drew up a guide within the framework of project WaterProtect to support the implementation of good agricultural practices that protect drinking water sources. The project focused on 7 European 'action labs'.
The aim of the Flanders Environmental Agency (VMM) is to reduce the water consumption by 25% of the permitted quantity to keep the quantitative and qualitative balance between the water supply and the water use within the deep ground layers.

Main research questionThis project "Irrigation 2.0" aims to improve the efficiency of farm irrigation to ensure an optimal application of the available water sources. Additionally, farmers are informed about available alternative water sources that can be used in times of water scarcity.
After all, agricultural and nature-oriented land can often be found close to each other, each with their own water needs.Research approachThe collection of all available relevant data is an important part of this project.
