Crop Water Use as a Function of Climate Variability in Georgia
MetadataShow full item record
Climate variability in Georgia during the 20th century was investigated in this project. Crop water use of important agricultural crops, including maize, soybean and peanut, was assessed with crop simulation models of the decision support system for agrotechnology transfer (DSSA T). Spatial distributions of irrigation requirements during the growing season are presented. It was found the requirements for supplemental irrigation have a high negative correlation with precipitation received during the growing season.
