We introduced a management plan to improve the efficiency of irrigation of the golf course in 2018. As part of this plan we began to manage irrigation application in relation to ET0 (Evapotranspiration), introducing Kc (Crop Coefficient) to adjust the frequency and amount of irrigation applications. We also reviewed the efficiency of the system itself, localized irrigation applications, valve management, and daily decisions to irrigate as a function of all parameters. The results obtained when compared to the year 2017 resulted in a saving of about 45,000 m3 of water, In 2018 we consumed 210,000 m3 against the 255,000 m3 consumed in 2017.
