Title

Remote Sensing in Precision Agriculture

Abstract

Remote Sensing is at the center of Precision Agriculture and offers numerous benefits to those who utilize it. Hyperspectral remote sensing can be used to detect deficiencies within fields far before the human eye is able to. This allows us to detect problems, such as diseases, early in the growth cycle while there is still plenty of time to counteract. As a result, a much higher percentage of a diseased field is able to be saved and harvested. Variable Rate Technology is used in Precision Ag because it allows farmers to apply fertilizers, herbicides, and even irrigation to specific areas rather than to an entire crop which may not need it. This means that far less product is used, resulting in less waste. As population grows and more strain is put on our current practices it is crucial that we utilize the benefits of Precision Agriculture to maximize efficiency and crop yield.
