Irrigation Workshop Resource efficient design and management of vineyard irrigation
Who should attend?
Vineyard owners, anyone responsible for planning and management of irrigation
Why is this workshop important?
Efficient use of irrigation water saves cost, provides the best yield, fruit quality, and helps growers to remain within their allocated water budget
- Irrigation design and installation considerations
- Estimation of crop water use (ET) and crop coefficients (Kc)
- Effects of canopy size (various trellis), slope and aspects on vineyard water use
- Irrigation management strategies
- Methods and tools for irrigation scheduling
- Minimizing heat damages
- Available financial incentives for irrigation modernization
There is a 30 minutes Q&A session planned after the presentation.
