Remote sensing and apparent electrical conductivity to characterize soil water content
Improvement in water use efficiency of crops is a key component in addressing the increasing global water demand. The time and depth of the soil water monitoring are essential when defining the amount of water to be applied to irrigated crops. Precision irrigation (PI) is a relatively new concept in agriculture, and it provides a vast potential for enhancing water use efficiency while maintaining or increasing grain yield. As part of site-specific farming, PI needs to be explored, tested, and evaluated which continues to be a research issue. Neutron probes (NPs) have consistently been used for ...
