Farm constructed wetlands for water retention

The analysis and modelling of soil moisture retention with drainage level controls, vegetated buffer zones and nutrient retention in wetlands for water management will consider the need for adaptation to climate change and its impact on ecosystem services such as flood control. WATERAGRI will evaluate long-term benefits for the farm and the local ecosystem from the implementation of water retention systems and measures with the support of water management organizations such as CER in Italy (e.g., ANBI (Italian association of 151 agricultural water boards) and Irrigants d’Europe (about 75% of the irrigated land in the EU)).
