Project: Improving water use efficiency in paddy fields in Bangladesh using a non-invasive proximal soil sensor
- project duration
- 01-OCT-08 – 30-NOV-12
- This doctoral research project aims at developing and testing a methodology for the site specific management of soil properties allowing paddy rice growing farmers of alluvial areas in Asia to improve their water use efficiency. Therefore the non-invasive electromagnetic induction sensor EM38 will be evaluated to map soil compaction and related soil properties in detail.
