The purpose of the firm collaboration agreement is to achieve the objectives set by the partners involved in the MIDMURES project, under the terms and conditions stipulated in Grant agreement no. 07.0316/2010/582303/SUB/D1 approved by the European Commission Department of the Environment entered into force on 27/12/2010.
The specific objectives of the partnership that will be pursued for the realization of the “Mitigation Drought in Vulnerable Area of the Mures Basin” (MIDMURES) project:
Agro-meteorological warnings corresponding to drought-vulnerable areas in the Mureș Hydrographic Basin
Assessment of groundwater resources and establishment of the numerical model of their dynamics for the test area
Use of starch-based superabsorbents for soil water conservation in irrigated and non-irrigated crop plots
The use of pedo-climatic models coupled with economic models aimed at optimizing the crop structure
Wind energy system for irrigation of intensive crops
Determination and monitoring of crop vegetation status based on information extracted from satellite images
