REMOTE SENSING AND PRECISION AGRICULTURE
Monitoring crop status and dynamics by using remote sensing systems and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, or drones) technology. Application of advanced object-based image analysis (OBIA) techniques for mapping several crop features at the field level and proposing site-specific control treatments in the context of precision agriculture.
