Last updated 4/26/2007 at Noon
During an optical science conference in San Diego, a University of California, Davis soil scientist spoke on how to move remote sensing technology into precision agriculture.
Michael Whiting gave a presentation titled “Hyperspectral mapping of crop and soils for precision agriculture” at the SPIE annual meeting August 13-17 at the San Diego Convention Center. Susan Ustin was also a contributing author to the presentation.
Precision farming includes soil clay maps, soil moisture maps, chlorophyll maps, crop moisture maps, and soil salinity maps. Irrigation systems are chosen on soil, c...
