In WaterSense a decision supporting system for water management is developed. This system provides sensor data using flat covering detailed information about the actual amount of water in the area and the expected development. The water managers can take measures at an early stage to prevent flooding or water shortages. Farmers get through this system much more insight into the growth of their crop and the moisture and are therefore targeted measures. It was not possible to develop a decision supporting system for water quality , as sensors who can measure water quality in the root zone do not exist. Project partner Dacom is now developing a nitrate sensor for the root zone and hopes to bring it to the market in 2014.
