La tensiométrie pour piloter les irrigations, une utilisation raisonnée de la ressource en eau

Abstract : Irrigate to meet the needs of the inhabitants of the planet while using the least amount of water, it is mainly through the tensiometer irrigation management tool, that ensures efficient water management in the plot, that this challenge can be met. It avoids excessive water application, optimizes the use of soilwater reserves , and improves quantitatively and qualitatively the agricultural production. Since the first edition of this book thirteen years ago, the irrigation equipment remained substantially the same, but have benefited of improvements. The measurement automatisation allows more frequent observations, and therefore a closer monitoring of the evolution of the soilwater reserve. The advances in remote data generate better decision taking. New ways of applications, such as the use for landscape, but also monitoring locations of root trees, have emerged . These advances and the development of new irrigated areas piloted in a reasoned way led to the reissue of this extension manual accessible to non-specialists and without equivalent. Hence this method, developed by the agronomists of the Company Canal de Provence (SCP) and Irstea (ex- Cemagref) team, and very little expensive, could be more used. Audiences: farmers, technicians , professionals, trainers.
