Dr Jasim Uddin is working as Research Fellow at the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture (NCEA), University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Australia since 2012. His current research include development of smart automated surface irrigation system including hydraulic simulation, optimization and evaluation of surface irrigation, irrigation scheduling, modeling crop production and water balance. Dr Uddin is involved in an ACIAR project on integrated management of soil water for increased vegetable production in Laos and Cambodia.

Abstract Outline: Precise measurement of crop water requirements and crop co-efficients (Kc) play a vital role in precision irrigation scheduling of cotton in conditions of limited water resources. Growers who use weather based estimations of crop water use, utilise reference ET (ETo) values, and standard crop crop-efficient values provided in the literature and standard guideline documents. However, Kc values depend on site specific climatic and environmental conditions. Hence, crop water requirements (ETc) and associated Kc values of cotton, especially in the mature stages of the crop, were investigated over two summer seasons under the Smarter Irrigation for Profit project. The ETc was directly measured by eddy covariance technique, a most accurate micrometeorological method of ET measurements.
