“Sensors of monitoring, from theory to field”. Article on “L’Informatore Agrario”

We proudly share this article written by Francesco Marinello (Dipartimento Tesaf – Università di Padova and Neos srl), Marco Sozzi (Dipartimento Tesaf – Università di Padova) and Alessia Cogato (Dipartimento Tesaf – Università di Padova and Isiss G.B. Cerletti di Conegliano-Treviso) and published on the magazine L’Informatore Agrario (© 2018 Copyright Edizioni L’Informatore Agrario S.r.l.) concerning the characteristics of some multispectral sensors and their applications in Precision Agriculture.

The maps provided by multispectral sensors can be used for monitor the evolution of the crop cycle and, correlated with information on soil and weather and yields of the previous cycles, can be used to perform zonations and to create simulations. These operations are essential to predict productive trends and therefore to optimize treatments and agronomic inputs in the different areas identified.

Compared to satellites and proximal sensors, drones have peculiarity in flexibility of survey: this is fundamental in some phytosanitary or weeding treatments.
