AgCenter scientists have invented a new decision support system to improve irrigation scheduling and the quality of harvested sweet potatoes. The system maximizes the number of sweet potato storage roots through the use of a small group of solar-powered sensors. It can also determine proper irrigation rates and schedules and forecast potential yield to profitability. The system’s data is accessible through mobile phones, web-based applications and text messages to maximize convenience.
