Precise real-time automated cotton irrigation for improved water productivity

The project seeks to combine existing low cost ‘off the shelf’ technologies to develop a low cost, integrated sensing and automation platform for cotton irrigators. Continuous improvements in the cost and availability of connected sensor technologies for remote monitoring of irrigation provide the opportunity for relief from tedious manual management of broad-acre irrigation as well as increased productivity.
