AGRI (AGua para RIego, its Spanish name) is an automated GIS tool to support greater precision and efficiency in identifying water sources, increasing the cost-effectiveness of irrigation for smallholder farmers, while also ensuring drinking water supplies for rural communities, to improve food security and income generation. AGRI integrates publicly available information on terrain, soil and climate with mathematical and hydrological models to identify water sources for small-scale irrigation.

Starting at the plot to be irrigated, AGRI scans the surrounding area to identify potential sites for river diversion and rainwater harvesting. AGRI also displays viable routes for transporting water by gravity from the source to the field where it will be used and identifies the water drainage area for each site.
