Irrigation advice in the Garonne catchment
The Association Climatologique de la Moyenne-Garonne (ACMG-Agralis) provides irrigation advice to farmers in the Garonne catchment using a network of soil moisture probes in combination with a weather forecast. To add the spatial component within the field, satellite data from WaterWatch was used. WaterWatch derived detailed spatial information at field scale (~30m) on crop evapotranspiration using SEBAL. The irrigation scheduling tool IrriLook linked soil moisture to evapotranspiration. IrriLook can be considered as the integrator between soil moisture measurements and satellite derived evapotranspiration.
