How Agriculture Software for Nutrient Optimization Can Help to Protect Groundwater?

Webinar held during mid February 2019th

By researching literature one can find that nitrate (NO3) pollution of groundwater is common to the most countries in the world.

According to a new report by the European Environment Agency (EEA), only 40% of the continent’s water bodies are compliant with the agency’s environmental standards set by the European directive on water, which was adopted in 2000. The directive offers a framework for the evaluation, management and improvement of water resources throughout Europe.

The solution and mitigation for this issue can be found in integrated approach where both agriculture fertilization, unsaturated flow and transport and groundwater is taken into account.

Agriculture software for nutrient fertilization optimization is a tool that can help a lot in these effort. As someone who is working long time in the area of groundwater contamination from different sources, including agriculture, in last several years I was exposed to software that optimize fertilization of agriculture fields.

So in this webinar you will have integrated approach, unique to Environmental Modeling Solutions experts, www.advancedgwt.com, for mitigation of nitrate problem in groundwater.

Dragan Kaludjerovic, PhD
Dragan Kaludjerovic, PhD

More than 20 years in the field of water and environment, specialist in quantitative hydrogeology applying his knowledge on projects in Europe, US, Middle East, Australia and Africa. Uncertainty analysis of groundwater models is his another specialization. One of top success was mentoring one of the top world Australian Mining Company in using specialized techniques of mathematical model calibration and uncertainty analysis with PEST.

His Ph.D. was done on the topic of groundwater remediation. On the Middle East he was working on a capital project for the metro. A huge database was established (more than 500 observation points).

Business Development and Marketing

Working from Serbia he manages to set up brand acknowledged on Geological Survey of US Meeting in US 2019 as an example of how brand can be setup from distant country. The first online Conference Groundwater Science and Practice was organized in 2018. Proud to say that he become one of the moderators of the LinkedIn Groundwater Modeling Forum with 7000 members along with several university professors. He raised 100000 USD for his Start-Up. Another Start-Up is currently under development.

Coaching other companies and their engineers

First started with 1 on 1 courses throughout the world (mostly US) conducting Environmental Science Education Program with 900 participants.Topics were Water Resources Management, Remote Sensing and Seawater Intrusion. He was accepted on The John's Hopkins University for online specialization in 2018 where he attended one semester of Air Resources Monitoring and Management. Due to catastrophic air pollution in his native country he stopped his specialization on JHU and devoted his time to mitigation of indoor pollution with a top company in that arena. He was again accepted to continue his specialization in JHU in 2020. As one of greatest achievement was invitation to train JHU Ph.D. student in interpretation of Mars geology. Due to COVID-19, the project was postponed by NASA. Also, at beginning of 2020 he was elected to be a reviewer of The Book Coastal Hydrogeology for US journal.

Water Wells

During his consulting practices he was working with Roscoe Moss and arena of Aquifer Storage and Recovery for several years.

Publishing

He published over 20 scientific papers in his native language and the first one in English at MODFLOW Conference 1998. He published a book about Mathematical Modeling and Remediation that is currently under translation in English.

Sensors in Natural Resources

First started as his hobby after which his passion for electronics in environmental field was expanded and currently, he is writing a book on sensors application in natural resources.

Remote Sensing

By lunching of the Sentinel 2 satellite in 2016 he become interested in remote sensing and its application in water resources and agriculture. Did numerous projects in Agriculture and for big agriculture companies, the largest 10000 ha)

Summary :

His integrated knowledge of different disciplines in environment enabled him to develop a specific approach to managing natural resources (monitoring, modeling and remote sensing) Developing techniques for the determination of mineral resources from satellites was considered by several companies.
