1. Establish IMIS research and demonstration sites that represent significant cross-section of local farmers, crops and practices in Israel, the Jordan Valley in Jordan, and areas in the Palestinian Authority, including the West Bank. The system will be based on local meteorological data and field measured information inputs.
2. Develop the physical infrastructure and information management tools for rapid dissemination of quality assured and reliable irrigation scheduling data for the proposed project sites.
3. Establish scheduling criteria for the unique variety of field, orchard and vegetable crops grown in the project area, using the ET estimation models and incorporating agronomic considerations.
4. Establish interaction with farmers, farm advisors and extension personnel in the implementation of the system to ensure wide acceptance and sustainability.
5. Develop and disseminate the pilot project as a model - including infrastructure - for future cooperation between Israeli research and extension personnel from all agricultural sectors and cooperating entities from Jordan and the PA.
