Estimating the Potential to Reduce Agricultural Irrigation Water Demand in West Central Texas
The purpose of this paper is to assess future agricultural irrigation demand and estimate the potential for water savings from advanced irrigation technology adoption in Region F, an area encompassing 32 West Central Texas ...
Economics of Yield and Returns Variability with Dryland Cotton Cropping Systems
(Texas Journal of Agricultural and Natural Resources, 1997)
Cotton production in the Texas High Plains region accounts for 15 to 18% of the total cotton production in the United States. About half of the cotton in this region is grown under dryland conditions. Although much of the ...
Optimal Levels of Irrigation Water and Nitrogen Use in Cotton Production
(National Cotton Council of America, 1993)
A dynamic optimization model which introduces an intertemporal nitrate-nitrogen fertilizer and irrigation water optimal decision rules for cotton production in the South High Plains of Texas. The results indicate that ...
Ecnonomic Impacts of Precision Farming in Irrigated Cotton Production
(Agriculture Consortium of Texas, 2003)
Spatial optimal nitrogen fertilizer application levels and net revenues in irrigated cotton production were derived. Results indicate that precision farming can improve the profitability, and potentially reduce the ...
Analysis and Evaluation of the Impacts of Cotton Harvesting Dates in the Southern High Plains of Texas
(National Cotton Council of America, 1990)
Analysis and evaluation of factors affecting cotton returns through the harvesting season in the Southern High Plains of Texas revealed that cotton returns losses could be significant if harvesting is delayed. Also, it was ...

Multispectral Reflectance of Cotton Related to Plant Growth, Soil Water and Texture, and Site Elevation
(The American Society of Agronomy, 2001)
Radiometric data can be useful to determine the impact of field heterogeneity, irrigation, and fertilization on plant water and N use. A 2-yr (1998-1999) study was conducted on the South Texas High Plains to investigate ...
