Irrigation scheduling is the process of maintaining an optimum water balance in the soil profile for crop growth and production. Irrigation decisions are based on an accounting method on the water content in the soil.
The mission of this research group is to develop integrated circuit and microsystem approaches that enable a bridging between novel nano/micro-sensor technologies and high impact biomedical and environmental applications.
Drainage refers to the process and practices used to remove excess water from the soil surface and from the soil profile.
The Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) laboratory focuses on design and development of sensors and systems for monitoring and evaluating structural integrity of parts and components.
