Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Irrigated agriculture is key to national food security and center pivot systems dominate the U.S. landscape. The Irrigation scheduling supervisory control and data acquisition (ISSCADA) system is an autonomous technology that enables producers to use sensor network systems to enable variable rate irrigation management decisions with center pivot systems to improve crop water productivity and nutrient use with reduced labor. The system was tested in different climates across the U.S. by ARS scientists and shown to improve yield and crop water productivity with corn, cotton, sorghum, soybean.
