Abstract

Various types of site-specific, precision agriculture crop management practices have been investigated around the country. One such activity that has been shown to be practical in the Texas High Plains is the variable-rate application of plant growth regulator (PGR) to cotton. A procedure is described to perform variable-rate PGR management based on mid-season aerial remote sensing imagery. In this procedure, aerial remote sensing provides a method for collecting spatial data related to the vegetative tendency of the cotton crop, upon which PGR application recommendations are based. The steps in this procedure are described, along with the potential benefits of this strategy.
