FruitCREWS- Fruit tree Crop REsponses to Water deficit and decision support Systems pplications

UTAD/CITAB Coordinator: Anabela Afonso Fernandes da Silva

FruitCREWS Action addresses the challenges of climate change, particularly water scarcity and increased evapotranspiration in agriculture. Our focus is on fruit tree crops, which face significant risks due to these factors.


Our Action aims to understand how fruit tree crops respond to drought stress in different environments. We strive to identify effective tools for real-time monitoring of plant water status and enable growers to schedule irrigation accurately using new technologies.
