To learn about collective and on-farm irrigation systems, with particular attention to high-efficiency irrigation systems (sprinkler and micro-irrigation). To explore the different components of on-farm irrigation systems and their management and maintenance. To investigate the criteria for choosing the proper irrigation method and system in the various environmental conditions. To learn about the general and hydraulic design of on-farm irrigation systems and the evaluation of their irrigation efficiency.
Expected learning outcomes
The student will be able to find and process data needed for the design of on-farm irrigation systems, to perform the general and hydraulic design of the systems, also using calculation and GIS/CAD tools. The student will acquire skills for assessing technical and economic implications of the project implementation, and will be able to consult technical and scientific material concerning the irrigation sector.
