Research Project: COTTON HARVESTING RESEARCH APPLICATIONS TO ENHANCE PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT

Location: Cotton Production and Processing Research

Project Number: 6208-21410-007-21
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 15, 2008
End Date: Dec 31, 2012

Objective:
Use data gathered during harvest to develop and improve crop management tools.

Approach:
Test plots located on the Texas High Plains will be planted with multiple cotton varieties and grown under irrigated and non-irrigated conditions. Remote sensing of the plots at various stages of growth will be performed to evaluate the status of the plants. The plots will be harvested with a machine equipped with a yield monitor. The yield data will be correlated with the remote sensing data to develop yield prediction algorithms.
