    HYDRA introduces information modelling and decision-support systems (DSS) to farmers and authorities in European Mediterranean agriculture in order to improve irrigation practices at different levels. Key components of HYDRA-DSS are a hierarchical setof water balance and crop growth simulation models, an agrometeorological information system, a soil information system, a geographical information system, optimization modules and an advanced graphical user interface. The end-product, the HYDRA-DSS, is a versatile software package that can be employed for both strategic and operational irrigation water management purposes.
