irrigation management, DSS, economic optimisation of irrigation, soil water deficite, drought
We are interested in participating in a consortium aiming at optimization of agricultural production, especially sustainable irrigation and fertilization, covering possibly issues of precise agriculture, remote sensing, wireless sensor networks, on-line support tools, open interoperable software architectures and participatory research.
The Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation - State Research Institute is a large research institution dependent directly upon the Polish Ministry of Agriculture. The Institute consists of numerous departments, dealing with agricultural production and environment. It owns also 12 research farms located across Poland, presenting a good basis for strict experiments for fundamental and applied research. The Institute is involved in numerous international and national projects. Recently we finalized ENORASIS project, aimed at crating an innovative irrigation management DSS, where the team from the Institute was responsible of designing the core DSS component of the systems and led the pilot implementation of the ENORASIS system in Poland, Turkey, Cyprus and Serbia. Other project we are or were involved in address i. a. sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, cropping systems, precision agriculture, food safety, agricultural economics, soil protection, adaptation and mitigation towards climate change and energy plants.
