Does the institution use weather data or weather sensors to automatically adjust irrigation practices?:
Yes

A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:

The newly installed irrigation system has an underground sensor that measures the saturation and the ground temperature to adjust the amount of water used in irrigation. Instead of typical irrigation systems, Domenico La Gamba stated that this new system reduces the amount of water used in landscaping.
