Fly over the Luxembourg vineyards with LIST’s drone and find out how our researchers detect diseases that are threatening Luxembourg’s viticulture.
It is particularly challenging to grow grapes for high-quality wines with a limited use of pesticides, because non-chemical agricultural control methods (such as annual crop rotation or tillage systems that interrupt the life cycle of pests) cannot be used in viticulture.
As part of the BioVim project, LIST researchers equipped a drone with a hyperspectral imaging camera, allowing them to track the development of vine diseases at an early stage and exclusively in the locations where they appear. The aim is to offer an alternative to pesticides and to assist winemakers who are dedicated to an organic approach.
LIST’s researchers from the BioVim project will be present at the Libramont Agricultural Fair in Belgium from 26th to 29th July: come and meet them and find out about the remote sensing technologies that will make the agriculture of tomorrow.
