Remote sensing is a good fit for solutions to many of the challenges faced by agricultural operations today because this industry is inherently spatial. Moreover, it is important to monitor valuable commodities that are environmentally sensitive. Crop production can vary within and among years due to issues of land, drainage, and climate. Although crops only grow for a brief time, they create microenvironments and form habitat for other unwanted organisms, which are crop stressors. Now, your multispectral monitoring and scouting during growth and maturation enables you to respond to the health of your crops with area specific UAV spraying. This focus saves you money and limits the amount of chemicals released into the environment.
