Location: Crop Production Systems Research
Project Number: 6402-13000-003-00-D
Project Type: In-House Appropriated
Start Date: Jan 3, 2011
End Date: Feb 6, 2012
Design improved irrigation technologies and automated scheduling techniques to detect crop water status and provide site-specific water application guidelines.
The research will develop production systems and identify management practices that improve soil quality and increase profitability by incorporating conservation production practices, alternative crops and crop rotations. Profitability of management practices and production systems will tested with economic analysis. Fundamental principles of successful production systems will be delineated, and examined for impacts on risks, competitiveness and environmental impacts.
