Precise irrigation water management is desired in settings with limited water to improve water use efficiency and crop water productivity as well as optimize the yields. Producers require simple tools for irrigation scheduling. Therefore, this research extended the understanding of use of both stationary and mobile platforms mounted with thermal infrared sensors (thermal infrared thermometers (IRTs) and thermal camera) to quantify water use (i.e., crop evapotranspiration, ETc) and identify water stress (i.e., crop water stress index, CWSI) in both irrigated and non-irrigated settings in semi-arid climate of West Central Nebraska.
