EIA Summer virtual Irrigation Forum – June 30, 2022
30 Jun 2022 - 30 Jun 2022 | 14:00 - 16:00 | Virtual

Main topics : Sat-Irrig tool / Dynamic Agrivoltaism

 

SAVE THE DATE ! 

The next European Irrigation Association (EIA) Forum will be held online on June 30, 2022 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm CET.

This time we will learn more about two subjects:

  • The presentation of Sat-Irri, an Irrigation scheduling tool based on satellite images,
  • The concept of agri-voltaism, the simultaneous production of crops and electricity

 

WHAT IS THE IRRIGATION FORUM ?

At the time of accelerated global change in various aspects of business, politics and social life, the opportunities to exchange between water & irrigation experts is becoming more and more important. This is the purpose of the EIA’s Irrigation Forums.

The Irrigation Forum is a gathering event held four times a year with the aim to cover a range of relevant topics concerning the Irrigation Sector in Europe. As well as the professional program, the forum also provides an opportunity for the participants to meet each other (these days virtually…) and to strengthen their network with European colleagues.

The Irrigation Forum is an event open to all industry professionals and visitors who are interested in technology, sustainability & innovation in the irrigation sector.

 

AGENDA :

  1. Introduction by EIA President, Moshi Berenstein.
  2. Welcome to the new members, EIA Communication Officer, Fleur Martin
  3. Guest Speaker: Michel Le Page, IRD – CESBIO, LMI TREMA, Marrakech, Maroc : Presentation of Sat-Irrig tool. The “Evapotranspiration” Scientific Expertise Centre (SEC) brings together teams from CesbioEmmahInrae and IRD that develop mapping of evapotranspiration, particularly over irrigated or unirrigated agricultural areas, based on thermal imagery (TIR) or reflectance imagery in the visible – near infrared domain (NDVI).
  4. Innovation & Technology session– Damien Fumey, Sun’Agri : Dynamic agrivoltaics is an agricultural tool for crop protection developed by Sun’Agri. It involves constructing a system of solar louvres on top of the crops, which represents a real agronomic breakthrough that protects yields by combating water, heat and solar radiation stress
  5. Open session for Q&A.
