Post-doctoral Fellowship in Italy for 2 years: Development of algorithms for the management of precision fertilization in farms of the Umbria Region (Central Italy)
Date added: 09 July 2018
Organisation: University of Tuscia
Location: Viterbo, Italy
Application deadline: beginning of August 2018
Starting period: beginning of September 2018
The goal of the specific research that will be carried out by the candidate is the development and/or improvement of algorithms exploiting multi-temporal and multi-sensor satellite data assimilation into crop models, especially targeting nitrogen-related variables, in support of precision agriculture applications
Models and algorithms will be targeted to their inclusion into an operational web-based platform (Smartagri Platform), developed by a company involved in the project, for supporting the management of precision fertilization of farms of the Umbria Region, based on satellite remote sensing data, weather data, integration into crop and agrometeorological models, soil and crop management information.
