We promote resilient and sustainable water-limited agricultural production systems through irrigation and crop production field research using remote sensing, irrigation scheduling, and crop growth monitoring to manage these systems for economic benefits and environmental services. Equally, we develop simulation models and tools from field to watershed scales that extend field research and serve as decision support tools for farmers, agricultural industry, cooperative extension, and action agencies.
