Precision irrigation in agriculture has been obtained thanks to this research project coordinated by the University of Parma, which is described in one of the winning videos of the I invest here 2018 contest in the “Food and Agriculture” category

The project

ALADIN is an irrigation protocol designed by CIDEA [Interdepartmental Centre for Energy and the Environment] at the University of Parma with other partner research entities (UNIFE, CER, CRPA, and SSICA). With ground sensors, drones, or satellites, ALADIN measures the state of water stress due to agriculture, coordinates the CER's Irrinet service, draws from it an irrigation recipe according to the various zones in the field, translates it into commands for irrigation equipment, and sends it to the user through a mobile application.


Promoting efficient use of water in agriculture and introducing management innovation in this supply chain. It is useful for the operators, who can use the ALADIN service to obtain real-time information on the state of irrigation in each plot.


Ending on 31 March 2018, the project entered a demonstration phase of precision irrigation interventions to make this one-of-a-kind water-intelligent system operational.

Reference call

ALADIN is a research project supported by the ERDF ROP 2014-2020 Axis 1, with the 2015 “Projects in strategic industrial research” call.
