Project: Advanced Monitoring of Tree Crops for Optimized Management - How to Cope With Variability in Soil and Plant Properties?

The target of 3D-Mosaic is to promote precision management of orchards by means of a decision support system (DSS) aiming to optimize efficiency of inputs including water and to diminish the environmental footprint of fruit production. The DSS will apply information and communication technologies (ICT) for precision management of the most economically relevant tree crops, apple and citrus. For this purpose, sensors, monitoring strategies, information processing and decision support systems will be developed. Together, these will produce maps for orchard management including irrigation.
