Abstract

The LIFE AGROWETLANDS II - LIFE15 ENV/IT/000423 project, funded under the LIFE 2014/2020 Programme - Environment, aimed to improve the management of two resources essential for life and strategic for agriculture: water and soil. Water is commonly considered a renewable resource, but if this is true in a wide context, it is not so at a local scale regarding quality, or through centuries. The soil, on the other hand, is anyways considered a non-renewa-ble resource. Concerning the agricultural practices that affect the conservation of water and soil, and in particular irrigation, the project developed a tool to support irrigation management on saline soils. The project also identifies precision agriculture and its developments as a crucial tool for the sustainability of agriculture itself in the coming years.
