The main goal of the WATERMED platform is the optimization of fertilizer and water inputs in agriculture, thus it has been developed by taking into account technical aspects, as well as governance factors for a more efficient use of water in agriculture. To achieve this goal, field studies are implemented in Algeria, Spain and Türkiye, and irrigation/fertilization plans are being developed by the platform, deploying smart agricultural technologies in the process.
