Several methods were developed for the redistribution of nitrogen (N) fertilizer within fields with winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) based on plant and soil sensors, and topographical information. The methods were based on data from nine field experiments in nine different fields for a 3-year period. Each field was divided into 80 or more subplots(More)
The SVAT model DAISY is modified to be able to utilize remote sensing (RS) data in order to improve prediction of evapotranspiration and photosynthesis at plot scale. The link between RS data and the DAISY model is the development of the minimum, unstressed, canopy resistance rmin c during the growing season. Energy balance processes are simulated by(More)
The development of site-specific crop management is constrained by the availability of sensors for monitoring important soil and crop related conditions. A mobile time-domain reflectometry (TDR) unit for geo-referenced soil measurements has been developed and used for detailed mapping of soil water content and electrical conductivity within two research(More)
This study investigates whether a water deficit index (WDI) based on imagery from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can provide accurate crop water stress maps at different growth stages of barley and in differing weather situations. Data from both the early and late growing season are included to investigate whether the WDI has the unique potential to be(More)
The description and modelling of crop growth and quality has received increasing attention over the past decades. There are widely different aims and scales in the use crop modelling. Some models are thus used to increase knowledge on the functioning of entities and groups of entities in the agroecosystem. Other models are used to evaluate consequences of(More)
We report the use of a pulse-width modulation drive technique for high-resolution liquid-crystal gratings and show how the grating diffraction efficiency depends on the duty cycle of the drive signal. We identify a regime in which the diffraction efficiency is linearly proportional to the duty cycle, thereby providing a linear drive characteristic.
