  • Develop practical application method of soil moisture sensors for irrigation scheduling on soybean.
  • Compare the sensor-based irrigation scheduling method with Arkansas Irrigation Scheduler.


Results will be updated upon completion of the research project.


This will provide better understanding for farmers on the correlation of scheduled irrigation and the soybeans growth.
