HYDRO2 is a 1ha of an agroforestry system that is fertigated using reclaimed water with a high nutrient content that is the result/output from HYDRO1 system.
The nutrient-rich water is used to cultivate 1ha of an agroforestry system.
The agroforestry is divided into 3 main groups: (1) trees for fruit production, (2) orchards bushes; and (3) herbs and annual crops. These were selected after intense research of the HYDROUSA consortium, but also co-created with the locals who shared their knowledge and experience on appropriate plants.

HYDRO2 combines the regenerative capacities of agroforestry with the use of reclaimed water and nutrients. The irrigation of the agroforestry system is divided into two different irrigation systems; one through drip irrigation and the other one through traditional stone channels coupled with furrow irrigation. Up to 100 m3 of reclaimed water per day (in summertime) is available for irrigation.
