French demo site visit: a trip to Burgundy
General overview of the area for the French demonstration site
This is thanks to Maison Louis Jadot (https://www.louisjadot.com/) that accepted to host the ground devices that are necessary to gather the input data of the forecast model. All MAGDA partners are very grateful for this cooperation. MAGDA will provide useful data for vineyard growers but also for other cultivated crops in the area.
Burgundy is one of the world’s most revered vineyard, because of the microclimates that makes each wine so special. So, the area and demo site is an ideal playground for our objectives. Especially because hail and frost can occur in the area and can cause severe damage to the crops.
