It is well known that a tree’s canopy size is strongly linked to irrigation requirements of a crop. This project is delivering a vineyard and orchard monitoring system to help growers manage irrigation and plan other management activities to achieve the best outputs with the available water resources. The tool will integrate canopy measurements and soil moisture data for accurate irrigation modelling.
