A model for irrigation scheduling utilizing soil moisture deficit. Application to a sugar cane field

Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Tottori University 48: 35-41

A model for irrigation scheduling utilizing soil moisture deficit. Application to a sugar cane field

It is important for upland field irrigation scheduling to determine the optimum amount and timing of irrigation. A soil moisture deficit prediction model (a SMD model) has been reformed by the authors since 1990. In this study, the SMD model was applied to a sugarcane field in Miyako-island and its accuracy was tested. Moreover, the automatic determination of model parameters was attempted by using a mathematical optimization method.
