Applying AquaCrop-OSPy to real-time irrigation

Crop and irrigation modeling based on fundamental physics can be very valuable in forecasting requirements and production in preparation for next season's planting/harvesting cycle. AquaCrop is such a model. It forecasts daily watering needs and allows for simple through detailed data input. Its supplied input files offer configurations for various crop, soil, terrain, and irrigation types. If one knows historical...

LoRa flood messaging applied to remote soil-moisture monitoring

Soil-Moisture sensing has proven to be an important factor in decreasing the need for irrigation while maintaining crop yield and quality. Farmers’ finding ways to minimize water use is necessary given the world’s obvious climate change and, in some areas, the resulting onslaught of drought. As the world’s population grows and the demand for higher-quality food increases, precision irrigation becomes...
