Sense-T: Sensor smart irrigation

McCarthy, Alison and Shippam, Ralph and Agustina, Lidya (2017) Sense-T: Sensor smart irrigation. Project Report. Sense-T , Australia. [Report]

Abstract

The Sense-T Sensor-Smart Irrigation app predicts daily soil-water in the infield spatial zones using FAO-56. The irrigation requirement is determined in each zone from the difference between the predicted soil-water and field capacity. Incorporation of a biophysical crop production model enhances prediction capability for crop yield and impacts of irrigation management decisions on production and water use efficiency over the prediction horizon.Crop production models can be calibrated to reflect field conditions using machine vision and imagery from infield or remote sensors. This section presents an investigation of crop production models for incorporation into the app for production prediction.
