Final Report - IRRIQUAL (Sustainable orchard irrigation for improving fruit quality and safety)

Project ID: 23120
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report of the IRRIQUAL project was the valuation of new irrigation practices, including water doses implementation, water quality use and fertigation management. The research methodology was based on a combination of experiments, field surveys and modelling tools aimed at predicting the impact of a given irrigation practice on the relevant inputs (water, fertilisers) and outputs (yield, quality, safety) of four Mediterranean fruit trees species (peach, olive, almond, citrus).

The report describes the motivation and objectives of the project, before referring to the steps taken within the scope of the research. A summary of results is presented and then there is a detailed description of the work performed under each one of the individual work packages. The experiments conducted are described in great detail, as are the results and recommendations for each case.
