In this presentation, we will explain what “irrigation scheduling” is and why we need to do it and provide information on various technology-based irrigation scheduling approaches. We will discuss soil sensors (moisture, potential), ag weather stations, plant sensors and thermal sensing methods (ground-based, drone, satellite, thermal-RGB imager, IRTs, etc), and how they can be used for irrigation scheduling. We will also briefly discuss some important technologies for fruit loss management (heat and cold stress related like apple sunburn and frost).
