Smarter Irrigation 2: Plant-based sensing for cotton irrigation

Water is the most limiting factor for cotton production in Australia. This project aims to help optimise the irrigation strategies for fully irrigated and partially irrigated cotton by utilising plant-based sensing techniques including canopy temperature and UAV thermal imaging. This project will also provide technical and extension support to the Australian cotton industry for adoption of irrigation scheduling based on continuous canopy temperature measured using infield infrared sensors.
