Satellites to monitor the nutritional status of wheat fields and drones to detect grapevine illnesses are just two examples of remote sensing technologies that make precision agriculture possible. The aim is to reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides thanks to a custom application based on the needs of the land. In this video, LIST’s researcher Miriam Machwitz explains how drones take very-high-resolution images, which can help in detecting and monitoring diseases in vineyards.
If you want to know more about precision agriculture, come and join us at the AdHoc-Now 2019 conference on 1-3 October in Luxembourg. AdHoc-Now is dedicated to wireless and mobile mesh computing. The 2019 edition will address the current and future status of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, among others in the areas of Disaster Management, Precision Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring and Management, with a particular focus on the integration of IoT with remote sensing, satellite communication, and satellite navigation. Hurry up! Registration is open until 24 September.
