Project Overview

The CCUH and Western Center for Agricultural Equipment (WCAE) are joining forces with the SmartFarm initiative and partnering with over twenty horticultural industry professional companies and organizations to create the “SmartLandscape” at UC Davis.  The CCUH will expand knowledge of “key” water conservation practices learned from conducting over 35 irrigation management workshops for landscape professionals on this project and will provide educational opportunities for undergraduate students.

The latest available irrigation technology will be employed with the ability to measure and monitor water-use. Additionally, the SmartLandscape site will utilize sustainable management practices along with low water-use plants and landscape best management practices.  Stay tuned for SmartLandscape, for this initiative will provide a nexus with researchers, industry professionals and students showcasing landscape water conversation and water use efficiency.
