Agroforestry remote sensing with drones
Factors such as climate change, population growth, and food security are driving the agri-food industry to seek innovative approaches to improve crop yields.
Agriculture is also one of the sectors that most affects the loss of soil and the contamination of groundwater due to poor management of nitrogen fertilizers.
Starting from these premises, it is necessary to search for new methods and techniques to reduce water consumption in agriculture together with better use; In the same way, if we tend to the particular nutritional needs of each plant through sensors (terrestrial, airborne or satellite), we will be able to carry out localized management of agricultural inputs, but maintaining or increasing production per hectare, and obtaining products that manage to satisfy the demand in terms of quality that the consumer has imposed on the market.
Remote sensing and photogrammetry make it possible to capture huge amounts of data in real time. These technologies make it easier for farmers to be able to anticipate natural events, diseases or pests, yields, processes and make the best decisions.
