Remote Sensing

remote sensing



Remote Sensing involves using non-contact methods to gather information related to soil and plant material in agricultural fields. Remote sensing applications are typically classified according to the type of platform for data collection - satellite, aerial or ground. Remote sensed imagery in precision agriculture is commonly used for mapping and monitoring various soil and crop properties to determine spatial variability within the fields for more efficient use of crop inputs. Rapid availability of remote sensing platforms and low-cost high-resolution sensors has increased the utilization of remote sensed data for monitoring and site-specific applications in precision agriculture.
