Plenary Speaker I

Dr. Daniele Zaccaria
College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at UC Davis, USA

Research interests:
Agricultural water management, irrigation, agriculture, fruit and nut trees, environment and natural resources

Brief overview:
His work focuses on putting together modern agricultural water management solutions to improve resource efficiency in irrigated agriculture. Resource efficiency aims to decouple economic growth from environmental burdens. When this concept is applied to irrigated agriculture, it requires that design and management of irrigation systems enable growers to enhance the economic profits from farming activities, without generating adverse environmental effects.

Current projects:
Estimating actual evapotranspiration of vineyards with different aspects and slopes by surface renewal method
Estimating evapotranspiration of alfalfa (ETr) by weighing lysimeters, and evaluating the standardized reference equation for ETr
Development and validation of a methodology for auditing performance and planning modernization in pressurized irrigation delivery systems (MASSPRES — Mapping System and Services for Pressurized Irrigation), in cooperation with the FAO Land and Water Division and the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies
