VirtualAg Expert Series webinar – Tree crop irrigation management using remote sensing
In this webinar, FluroSat’s Global Head of BD, Dr. Manal Elarab was joined by Dr. Itamar Nadav, Project Manager and Chief Agronomist R&D at Netafim who shared with our community his experience in managing tree crops around the globe using advanced irrigation systems, remote sensing, precision agriculture and advanced modelling.
Itamar has touched on the basis of the remote sensing-driven tree and irrigation management, explained how to calculate the amount of water required by almond, citrus and vines/vineyards from thermal imagery and NDVI indices of the plant, and also shared the latest developments in irrigation for fruit/nut trees, such as Netafim’s Variable Rate Drip Irrigation (VRDI).
The webinar outline:
1. Remote sensing & Irrigation
2. From data ⇒ Decisions, Irrigation Scheduling
3. Irrigation technology and the Future and much more!
