Summary: Optimum cotton irrigation is difficult to achieve in humid regions due to the variable rainfall patterns from year to year. To assist in adjusting for these variable conditions, sensors characterize the amount of water in the soil profile thus improving the ability to schedule cotton irrigation. This presentation describes how different types of sensors and configurations impact selection, placement, data collection, interpretation and the cost of sensors.
