Active optical proximal cotton canopy sensing spatial data and including additional related metrics such as thermal are presented.
Agronomic nitrogen and irrigation management related field operations are listed.
Unique research experimentation intermediate analysis table is made available, along with raw data.
The raw data recordings, and annotated table outputs with calculated VIs are made available.
Plot polygon coordinate designations allow a re-intersection spatial analysis.
Data was collected in the 2012 season at Maricopa Agricultural Center, Arizona, USA.
High throughput proximal plant phenotyping via electronic sampling and data processing method approach is exampled.
Acquired data using USDA Maricopa first mobile platforms, such as the Proximal Sensing Cart Mark 1, and via people.
SAS and GIS compute processing output tables, including Excel formatted examples are presented, where data tabulation and analysis is available.
The weekly proximal sensing data collected include canopy reflectance at six wavelengths, ultrasonic distance sensing of canopy height, and infrared thermometry. Lint and seed yields, first open boll biomass, and nitrogen uptake were also determined. Soil profile nitrate to 1.8 m depth was determined in 30-cm increments, before planting and after harvest. Nitrous oxide emissions were determined 20 or more weeks in the season with 1-L vented chambers (samples taken at 0, 12, and 24 minutes). Nitrous oxide was determined by gas chromatography (electron detection detector).
