• Understanding Technical Terms and Acronyms Used in Precision Agriculture

      Andrade-Sanchez, Pedro; Heun, John T.; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2010-10)
      In this publication we make a recount of basic terms and acronyms used in describing the functionality and capabilities of precision agriculture technologies. Growers seeking to acquire new systems or upgrade their existing equipment need to be fluent in terminology used in communications, hardware, software, and other areas in order to make good decisions at the time of buying equipment. This information is also useful to educate equipment operators in the in-and-outs of this technology and this way be able to maximize the use of these expensive upgrades.

    • Water Management for Defoliation

      Silvertooth, Jeffrey C. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-06)
      There are several factors which are important to consider in managing defoliation. Factors such as plant-water relations, Nitrogen (N) fertility status, the extent of honeydew deposits on the leaves from insects such as the sweet potato whitefly or aphids, and weather conditions following the defoliant application are all important in terms of the final defoliation results.

    • Water Use in Vegetables - Carrots

      Martin, Edward; Slack, Donald; Pegelow, E. James; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2009-01)
      Carrot production in Arizona has increased significantly during the past five years. Unlike most vegetable crops, carrots can be harvested at different times in the growing cycle depending on size required. Water stress causes carrots to become woody and hard and too much water causes poor color and rot. This publication provides information on how to water carrots. Topics covered are commercial irrigation management and water use by carrots.
    • Water Use in Vegetables - Carrots

      Martin, Edward C.; Slack, Donald C.; Pegelow, E. J. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2014-10)
      The publication discusses water use in carrot production in Arizona.
    • Water Use in Vegetables - Cauliflower

      Martin, Edward; Slack, Donald; Pegelow, E. James; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2009-01)
      With most crops grown in Arizona, irrigation plays an important role in determining crop yield and quality. This is especially true for vegetable crops such as cauliflower where water stress can translate to poor yields (tonnage) or poor quality (firmness, head size, color). This publication addresses how to water cauliflower growing in Arizona and how to manage commercial irrigation.
