Georeferenced sensor-based data management system for site-specific irrigation and fertilization of open field vegetables

By means of a GIS-supported web application, the user will be given recommendations for action, which support him in the site-specific N-fertilization and irrigation. Information on soil characteristics, C-N-dynamics, crop development and irrigation needs will be combined through intelligent control systems and visualized for user decisions as a browser-based web application. As a result, watering and N fertilization maps can be created for partial area so that they can respond to differentiated water and nutrient requirements.
