Improving accuracy for sugar beet and developing an iOS app to increase functionality of a Colorado irrigation scheduler
Modeling actual crop water usage allows for improved information-based decision making and ultimately more effective use of water allocations within irrigated agriculture. Evapotranspiration (ET), a dynamic process of water loss through the soil surface (evaporation) and plant stomata (transpiration), is the main component of consumptive water use. Scheduling agricultural irrigation events is an effective tactic to minimize crop stress while avoiding unnecessary irrigation. A cloud based irrigation scheduling tool (WISE - Water Irrigation Scheduling for Efficient Application) which applies the ...
