Research Project

Irrigation response of soybean and cotton in different soils

Investigators: Gurbir Singh, Gurpreet Kaur, Himmy Lo

Funding Agency: NCAAR

Project Summary
There continues to be usage of and interest in sprinkler irrigation across the Mississippi Delta even though poly-pipe furrow irrigation is the most prevalent irrigation method. This project explores how sprinkler irrigation levels affect soil moisture sensor performance, crop yield, and farm profitability under soybean and cotton in soil types ranging from very fine sandy loam to clay. The findings are expected to result in recommendations both for texturally uniform fields and for texturally variable fields.
  • Crop Type:
