dc.description.abstractThree different irrigation scheduling techniques were compared in this study; aerial infrared, hand -held infrared, and neutron moisture gage measurements. There were four treatments with three replications of each. Treatment one was scheduled using aerial infrared imaging and analyzes performed by Agrometrics, Inc. Treatment two was scheduled using a hand -held infrared gun. Irrigations for this treatment were initiated at a crop water stress index value of 0.3. Treatments three and four were scheduled using neutron probe measurements. Treatment three was irrigated at 45% depletion of the available soil water. Treatment four was irrigated at 45% depletion of the available soil water until mid-bloom, when the strategy was changed to irrigate at 35% depletion. Yield results showed no significant difference between the treatments.
