Agricultural Management Decision Aids Driven by Real-Time Satellite Data

Agricultural Management Decision Aids Driven by Real-Time Satellite Data In a NASA-sponsored program entitled Use of Earth and Space Science Data Over the Internet, scientists at the University of WisconsinMadison have developed a suite of products for agriculture that are based in satellite and conventional observations, as well as state-of-the-art forecast models of the atmosphere and soilcanopy environments. These products include an irrigation scheduling product based in satellite estimates of daily solar energy, a frost protection product that relies on prediction models and satellite estimates of clouds, and a product for the prediction of foliar disease that is based in satellite net radiation, rainfall measured by NEXRAD, and a detailed model of the soilcanopy environment. During the growing season, the first two products are available in near-real time on the Internet. The last product involving foliar disease depends on a decision support system named WISDOM developed by the University of WisconsinExtension, which resides locally on growers' home computers. Growers interface WISDOM with a server to obtain the rainfall, meteorological data, surface radiation inputs, and canopy model output required by WISDOM for the blight models. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society American Meteorological Society

Abstract

In a NASA-sponsored program entitled Use of Earth and Space Science Data Over the Internet, scientists at the University of WisconsinMadison have developed a suite of products for agriculture that are based in satellite and conventional observations, as well as state-of-the-art forecast models of the atmosphere and soilcanopy environments. These products include an irrigation scheduling product based in satellite estimates of daily solar energy, a frost protection product that relies on prediction models and satellite estimates of clouds, and a product for the prediction of foliar disease that is based in satellite net radiation, rainfall measured by NEXRAD, and a detailed model of the soilcanopy environment. During the growing season, the first two products are available in near-real time on the Internet. The last product involving foliar disease depends on a decision support system named WISDOM developed by the University of WisconsinExtension, which resides locally on growers' home computers. Growers interface WISDOM with a server to obtain the rainfall, meteorological data, surface radiation inputs, and canopy model output required by WISDOM for the blight models.
