Sensor Placement

first_img“When we create management zones, the typical rule of thumb in precision ag is a range of somewhere between three and four management zones,” Porter said. “If we get much lower than that, then we’re not showing much variability in the field. If we get higher than five management zones, it can be higher than what we can actually manage.” The use of sensors in management zones allows farmers and researchers like Porter and Vellidis to make better irrigation decisions, he said.For more information about irrigation practices or techniques, see striplingpark.org/agricultural-water-conservation. Knowing the best place to install soil moisture sensors in fields, and how many, helps farmers optimize their water use, says University of Georgia Cooperative Extension precision agriculture and irrigation specialist Wes Porter. “Basically, what soil moisture sensors are giving us is a point reference in that field, or a one-point measurement from a particular area in that field,” he said. “If we take a bad measurement somewhere in the field, that’s going to affect our entire area.”Sensors are placed in the ground to provide farmers with accurate assessments of the soil quality. With the help of soil moisture sensors, questions of whether the soil is too dry, too saturated or whether certain areas are drier than others can be answered, Porter said.Two different kinds of sensors are typically used for measuring soil moisture. The most commonly used type is called “capacitance,” and it indicates the amount of water available to use. The other type, tensiometric soil moisture sensors, determines the soil moisture that’s available and measures how much energy a plant must exert to extract moisture from the soil. Once this level gets too high, the plant can no longer extract moisture from the soil.Porter, an advocate of sensors, says that to be effective agricultural tools, sensors have to be strategically placed throughout a field to provide accurate readings of the soil. If only one sensor will be used, he suggests picking an area that best represents the entire field. However, multiple sensors may be needed to get the best irrigation recommendations.Making hasty or bad decisions, like installing a sensor beside the road because it’s easily accessible, can cause ramifications later.“If we place the sensor in sandy soils, we might overirrigate the rest of the field. If we place the sensor in an area that has a slightly higher water-holding capacity and the rest of the field is mostly dominated by sand, it’s more than likely that the rest of the field will be underirrigated,” Porter said. “If we pick a lower area, in most cases, it’s going to be wetter. That means we’re not going to irrigate as often as we should. If we pick a higher area, it may be a little drier, so we would irrigate the field more than we normally would.”Porter also stresses the importance of realizing that all fields are not created equal. Soils in the Southeast have extremely high levels of variability. A farmer may have multiple fields physically located near each other but with very different soil types. “My advice is to invest a little bit more money and put a couple of sensors out in the field. If you’ve got a couple of sensors throughout the field, they will better represent the field. Then one can average those and better target what the entire field needs,” he said.Porter and UGA precision agriculture specialist George Vellidis use another management strategy with soil moisture sensors: management zones. They divide the field into zones and place multiple sensors in each zone. The sensors provide accurate information about the soil moisture in their respective zones.last_img read more

FERC chairman vows fuel neutrality on grid resilience

first_imgFERC chairman vows fuel neutrality on grid resilience FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):A rapid decline in costs and growing customer demand will continue to drive the expansion of renewable energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission member Neil Chatterjee said Sept. 26. As FERC looks at ways to define and value grid resilience, the Republican commissioner vowed that any new FERC policy will be “fuel-neutral,” even as nuclear and coal power advocates seek financial support for those plants.Chatterjee delivered his comments at the National Clean Energy Week Policy Makers Symposium in Washington, D.C. He repeated estimates from Bloomberg New Energy Finance that onshore wind and solar energy costs fell 18% in the first half alone, fueling the swift expansion in U.S. renewable-based power. He also highlighted the results of an Xcel Energy Inc. resource solicitation in 2017 in which median offers for wind and solar power were $18/MWh and $29/MWh, respectively, for contracts starting in 2023.The federal wind production tax credit expires before that year, yet Chatterjee said the offers Xcel received were still at or below the Midcontinent ISO’s average locational marginal price of energy in 2017. “This means that we are on the cusp of a future where renewables can compete on cost and make money on the open market even without subsidies.”For its part, FERC has worked to “level the playing field” for renewables, including through the commission’s Order 841issued in February and various proposals FERC has approved from regional grid operators to better integrate renewable power, Chatterjee said. Order 841 requires regional market operators to facilitate the participation of energy storage in competitive markets.Chatterjee said his past in coal country and support of nuclear power do not play a role in his decisionmaking at FERC. The GOP commissioner joined four other FERC members in unanimously rejecting a September 2017 proposal from Energy Secretary Rick Perry that sought to require regional grid operators to ensure full cost recovery for plants in wholesale markets that stored at least 90 days of fuel on-site. Perry said the rule was needed to ensure grid resilience and reliability, but critics said it would force consumers to pay for uncompetitive and unneeded coal and nuclear plants.More ($): US Republican policymakers tout clean energy progresslast_img read more

Women who are cheated on win in long term, while ‘other woman’ loses, say scientists

first_imgThe Telegraph 27 April 2016Family First Comment: No surprises in this study. “Women report that they are more attuned to cues of infidelity, dishonesty, and other ‘low mate value’ signals following having their mate ‘poached’ by another woman. Women also report that they are now more aware of their female friends and associates behaviour regarding their significant other.”Interested to know whether they studied what happens when the woman cheats on their husband. Or doesn’t that happen?!Women who lose their partner to a love-rival are better off in the long term, the biggest ever study of break-ups has found.Although being cheated on might initially seem devastating, in fact, it leaves the victim with a ‘higher mating intelligence’ which helps her to choose a more faithful partner in the future.In contrast, the ‘other woman’ ends up with a partner with a track record of being deceptive and a cheat, meaning that she is the long-term loser, according to psychologists.The study involved an anonymous online survey of 5,705 participants in 96 countries.The researchers from Binghamton University in the US and University College London looked at how happy men and women were before, during and after a breakup.The study showed that if a woman is cheated on, the lessons she learns can be ‘evolutionarily adaptive’ helping her select a much better mate.READ MORE: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/04/27/women-who-are-cheated-on-win-in-long-term-while-other-woman-lose/Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Gas prices: ‘Most expensive February ever’

first_img 100 Views   no discussions NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Gas prices jumped 6 cents overnight, as the recent spike in oil prices begins to hit filling stations across America. The national average price for a gallon of regular gas rose 5.9 cents to $3.287, motorist group AAA said Friday. That marks the third day in a row that prices have risen, and brings the national average to the highest level since October 2008. Prices at the pump can vary widely among states, due in large part to vastly different levels of gasoline tax. So far this week, gas prices have increased nearly 12 cents a gallon. And analysts expect prices to continue higher in the next few days following a sharp rise in the price of crude oil. Gas prices were highest in Hawaii, where drivers paid $3.757 a gallon, on average. Wyoming had the lowest gas prices at roughly, $3.014 a gallon. Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service, said the jump in gas prices reported Friday was the largest since at least 2008. “This will definitely be the most expensive February ever,” he said, adding that gas prices are typically lower during the winter months. The jump in pump prices follows a surge in prices for crude oil, the main ingredient in gasoline. Oil prices were holding near $98 a barrel early Friday morning, one day after prices hit a high of $103 a barrel — the highest since October 2008. Analysts expect prices to continue rising over the next few days, since gas prices typically lag trends in the oil market. The spike in oil this week could translate to an increase in gas prices of 37 cents per gallon in the coming weeks, according Moody’s Analytics economist Chris Lafakis. He estimates that for every $1 increase in the price of oil, retail gas prices typically rise 2.5 cents a gallon. Economists warn that an energy price shock could hurt the economic recovery in the United States. In general, every $1 increase in the price of oil costs consumers $1 billion over the course of a year. That’s concerning because consumer spending makes up the bulk of U.S. gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic growth. The government said Friday that GDP was revised lower to an annual growth rate of 2.8% in the three months ending in December. The initial reading had been for a 3.2% growth rate in the period. Oil prices have been driven higher by political unrest in North Africa and the Middle East, where much of the world’s oil comes from. Despite the surge in prices this week, the amount of oil that has been taken off the world market has been relatively minimal. Share Sharing is caring!
