The main goal of this project is to utilize advanced technologies to determine optimum irrigation thresholds and amounts for peanut: We will achieve our goal by pursing the following objectives:
Continue Irrigation Scheduling Method Improvement and Refinement by further evaluating commonly planted cultivars and improvements to methods.
Enhance our VRI system by adding phenology to its irrigation scheduling decision support tool.
Assess the potential of using remote sensing to create dynamic irrigation management zones in peanut.
Evaluate aerial imagery techniques such as thermal NOVI, for detecting crop water stress, and developing irrigation trigger points for scheduling irrigation on peanuts in Georgia.
