Development of low-cost remote sensing tools and methods for supporting smallholder agriculture
(Springer Link, 2019)
Agricultural UAV-based remote sensing tools to facilitate decision-making for increasing productivity in developing countries were developed and tested. Specifically, a high-quality multispectral sensor and sophisticated ...
Combining reference trials, farm surveys and mathematical models to assess carbon footprint and mitigation measures in tropical agriculture
This study aimed at estimating carbon footprint (CF) and assessing mitigation options for selected tropical crops using excel-based models, parameterized with data collected through closed-ended questions questionnaires, ...
Modelling strategies for assessing and increasing the effectiveness of new phenotyping techniques in plant breeding
New types of phenotyping tools generate large amounts of data on many aspects of plant physiology and morphology with high spatial and temporal resolution. These new phenotyping data are potentially useful to improve ...
