Estimating solar radiation for water-use and yield simulations under present and projected future climate using Cropsyst.
Agricultural scientists are faced with the challenge of producing enough food for the increasing world population. Hence the need to develop tools for managing soil and plant systems to increase food production in order ...
Estimation of reference evaporation and comparison with ET-gage evaporimeter
Accurate estimation of reference evaporation is necessary for the estimation of actual evaporation for irrigation and water resource management purposes. Estimation of reference evaporati~n using the Penman-Monteith method ...
The use of infrared thermometry for irrigation scheduling of cereal rye (Secale cereale L.) and annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.)
Limited water supplies are available to satisfy the increasing demands of crop production. It is therefore very important to conserve the water, which comes as rainfall, and water, which is used in irrigation. A proper ...
Modelling the soil water balance and applications using a decision support system (DSSAT v3.5).
Water is a scarce resource used by various stakeholders. Agriculture is one of the users of this resource especially for growing plants. Plants need to take up carbon dioxide to prepare their own food. For this purpose ...
Frequency domain reflectometry for irrigation scheduling of cover crops.
A well-managed irrigation scheduling system needs a rapid, preCIse, simple, costeffective and non-destructive soil water content sensor. The PRl profile probe and Diviner 2000 were used to determine the timing and amount ...
Modeling variety differences in canopy growth and development of sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) using Canegro.
Crop models have great potential as research tools, for crop system management and policy analysis. One of the most promising future uses of crop models is in crop improvement. The limitation in the use of models for crop ...
