Goal of the project is to produce a multifunctional software capable of modelling soil and precipitation characteristics for agricultural purposes. The software should be able to predict important aspects of agricultural environment so farmers would be able to better plan cultivation. As part of the project, the software will be applied on a specific area and the provided data will be shared with partner farmers. Utilisation of the software should allow decrease of water used in irrigation and increase of yield, thus helping adaptation to changing climate. Within the framework of the project beneficiary plans to carry out the following tasks: I. Development of methodology, preparation of system plan. II. Design and implementation of a data warehouse for the entire territory of Vojvodina, which contains all the GIS and other data and information that required for the planning process, including specific information and data related to the applied mathematical models. III. hydroinformatics system development. IV. Demonstration of the developed system in a specific sample area.
