Lysimetric Monitoring for Operation of Irrigation Systems in the USSR

by Boris K. Rassolov, SOVINTERVOD Water Engineering Co, Moscow, Russia,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Lysimeters for Evapotranspiration and Environmental Measurements


The author suggests a new method for operational control of irrigation regimes which is based on monitoring of a number of critical parameters related to the yield potentials of crops. In the author's opinion, the best use might be made of the temperature difference between the plant cover and the air, which can be easily measured over vast areas.
