Evaluate irrigated crop production and irrigation management in southeast Missouri.
Scientists from ARS and Cooperator will conduct crop production research in southeast Missouri relating to irrigated crop production and irrigation management. This research will include studies on agricultural experiment stations as well as on cooperator's farms. Development and irrigation functions will be defined for Mid-South crops; optimal management zones will be determined for variable rate irrigation; and improved methods will be developed for remotely monitoring crops.
