PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF SOIL MOISTURE SENSORS FOR OPTIMAL COTTON PRODUCTION

George Vellidis, Calvin Perry, Martina Weiss, John Snider, and Guy Collins, University of Georgia

The goal of the project is to evaluate commercially available and prototype soil moisture sensors for scheduling irrigation and develop irrigation scheduling protocols for humid area conditions in the southeastern United States. The project was conducted at the University of Georgia's Stripling Irrigation Research Park (SIRP) located near Camilla in Mitchell County. The sensors and scheduling protocols were field tested in large plots with both conventional and strip tillage. We evaluated four sensor / irrigation scheduling protocols which when combined with the tillage scenarios resulted in eight different treatments.
