An Interactive Crop Analysis Platform for Irrigation Scheduling
MetadataShow full item record
Agriculture is a major consumer of freshwater resources around the world. This especially true in Texas, where water withdrawal for agriculture purposes causes the continuous decline of local aquifers. To minimize the effects of this withdrawal and ensure freshwater resources have ample time to replenish themselves, it is important for crop producers to be accurate in their irrigation applications. This research exhibits a web platform that utilizes remote imagery and real-time weather data to generate irrigation recommendations for producers on a field-by-field basis. These recommendations allow producers to accurately gauge how much water their crops require on a daily basis and manage their irrigations throughout the growing season.
