IRSTEA's scientific and technical day
on irrigation technology

IRRIGATION in search of new sources of economy

     

The 15th of March 2012 - Aix-en-Provence
(bilingual presentations)



The evolution of energy and prices worries strongly the agricultural and landscape irrigation world. Frequent conflicts focussing on water resource question us on priorities and stakes of it uses. Water and energy efficiency control follow similar logics.

The first session will be to share the perception of irrigation water users on combined energy and water issues, and consider from their experiences how to implement analytical methods of carbon and water footprint. Then the main issues and perspectives of fertigation will be regarded similarly.

Thoughts around the small water cycle are of growing concern. Using water in cascade, positioning the most quality demanding uses upstream and the most tolerant downstream, helping transform some pollutants in inputs are fast developing practices. Sharing experiences, understanding potentialities and contraints when managing treated wastewater are the main objectives of the second session during which a presentation of the project Interreg MEDIWAT (www.mediwat.eu) will take place.

All the presentations will be bilingual (English, French).
