The Irrigation Innovation Consortium (IIC) recently announced funding for research "Advancing Development of Parallel 41 Flux Network for Real-Time Evapotranspiration Monitoring," led by DWFI Director of Research Christopher Neale. The IIC will fund six other research projects in the upcoming year.
The consortium's ultimate goal is creating greater resiliency in food and agriculture. Through the consortium, industry and the public sector co-develop, test, prototype and improve equipment, technology, and decision and information systems. Their work is equipping farms of the future with cutting-edge technologies for irrigation efficiency.
