Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Irrigation scheduling and crop water relations are interdpendent. There are many soil, plant and/or climate-based technologies. Some of these work well in a controlled research project but fail in commercial farmer environments. Some are widely used in a specfic crop, but not others. The measurment of soil mositure status has not advanced as significantly as might have been expected. New digital technologies are enabling soil and plant-based sensing. The aim of this Special Issue is to capture an international picture of significant irrigation scheduling technologies and their use.
