Project Number: 6208-21410-007-21-N
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: May 15, 2008
End Date: Dec 31, 2012
Use data gathered during harvest to develop and improve crop management tools.
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.
