With the collaboration of the Diputación de Lleida
The objective of this agreement is to regulate the collaboration between IRTA and the Diputació de Lleida in the research and experimentation project for the establishment of a demonstrative and experimental platform for the response of almond trees to irrigation on the Maials farm owned by the Corporation.
It includes two lines of work:
- Determination of the optimal water production function for almond tree cultivation in dry areas of the Catalan Mediterranean.
- Studies of almond tree water requirements and seasonal sensitivity of this crop to water deficit.
