Abstract: 
Objective: To investigate ways to improve irrigation management and optimize water usage; To investigate the impact of different levels of water salinity and irrigation on tree water use, irrigation need and date production; To investigate how different varieties of date palm respond to altered irrigation volumes and salinity levels; To develop a date palm plantation management tool (i.e. customized software to assess the impacts of irrigation and salinity management).
