Farmers irrigating their crops may get help from space

Newswise — Farmers irrigating their crops may soon be getting some help from space.  In 2018, scientists launched ECOSTRESS, a new instrument now attached to the International Space Station.  Its mission: to gather data on how plants use water across the world.

The ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) helps scientists answer three broad questions:

  • What’s happening with plants’ water use over the course of a day?
  • Can vulnerability to drought be reduced through more monitoring?
