Hyperspectral imaging for sustainable, more productive food crops

Hyperspectral imaging for sustainable, more productive food crops

Light-weight and spectral sensors for agriculture can reveal data about crops
“The use of light-weight and low-cost spectral sensors for agriculture is particularly exciting as there are so many ways in which land managers could benefit from the kind of data that this sensor generates”
Aerial imaging can be combined with hyperspectral technology (c) Hutton

Hyperspectral imaging, a growing area in remote sensing, holds the promise of providing a solution for crop monitoring over large areas, and scientists at the James Hutton Institute are working with partners in industry and academia to investigate the potential of the technology to maximise the sustainability and productivity of key food crops, as well as for other purposes including measuring the chemical composition of materials.
