An Interactive Diagnostic Application for Food Crop Irrigation Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Springer International Publishing AG 2017. Agriculture is a major consumer of freshwater resources around the globe. This is especially true in Northern Texas and Oklahoma, where water withdrawl for agriculture purposes causes the continuous decline of aquifers. Information based irrigation management has the potential to conserve these vital resources. In this paper, we report on an interactive irrigation application that utilizes weather and LANDSAT data to calculate daily water needs for food crops. The work demonstrates that low-cost data can provide both basic, and advanced irrigation solutions via a web application.
