The Role of Drones and Satellites in Land Use and Precision Agriculture

Clock icon
19:30 – 21:00 20 Feb 2017
Location icon
Hereford University Centre, Herefordshire & Ludlow College, Folly Lane, Hereford, HR1 1LS

Speakers: Dr Toby Waine, Cranfield University

Dr Waine will explore how science and technology is revolutionising agricultural engineering with a particular focus on remote sensing from space and drones. From measuring illicit opium production in Afghanistan to undertaking national assessments of vegetation in semi-arid climates, innovative use of remote sensing supports operational methods for vegetation monitoring and providing robust, statistically-based area estimates of land cover and net primary production.
