The relationship between measured soil properties, site-specific management zones, and bare soil reflectance : Colorado, USA
MetadataShow full item record
Soil productivity varies across farm fields and it is influenced by soil physical and chemical properties. Bare soil imagery can be used to delineate areas of homogeneous soil characteristics, based on variations in reflectance. The objectives of this study were to: (i) evaluate site-specific management zones on the basis of spatial variability in measured soil properties, and (ii) determine the measured soil properties whose variability could be best explained by remotely sensed bare soil reflectance data. The study was conducted on three irrigated fields near Greeley, Wiggins and Yuma in ...
