Abstract

In A Majority of Cases, Soil Properties Sensed on the go (E.g., Elec. Conductivity, Capacitance, Optical Reflectance, Mech. Resist., Fld. Elevation, Ion Activ., Etc.) Are Not Directly Related to Agronomic Parameters Used for Mgmt. Decisions. Nevertheless, These Sensors Provide us with the Opportunity to Obtain High Resolution Data on the Spatial Variability of Soil in Agric. Flds., Rapidly and at A Relatively Low Cost. to Better Use This Info. The Collec. of A Ltd. No. of Targeted Samples That Would Undergo Conventional Lab. Test. And/or Instal. of Temporal Monitoring Equip. May be Needed. Prescribing Repr. Targeted Locations Based on Multiple Sensor Data Layers is Not Trivial And, in Pract., is Conducted in A Very Subjective Manner. Our Res. Provides an Analyt. Methodol. to Assess the Qual. of Targeted Point Sel. Strategies. in the Example Provided, we Used A Combination of Apparent Soil Elec. Conductivity (EC) and Fld. Elevation Maps to Identify Sites for Water Content Monitoring.
