„ELABORATION OF INNAVATIVE METHOD FOR MONITORING THE STATE OF AGROCENOSIS WITH THE USE OF REMOTE-SENSING GYRO SYSTEM IN
TERMS OF PRECISION FARMING”
(the acronym of the project: GyroScan)
Project duration: 3 years (from 01.08.2016 r.)
The aim of the project is development of the Decision Support System based on the remote sensing method for precision farming (for determination of needs for agricultural practices). This method will be also applied for assessment of the degree of degradation of meadows (the method will refer to biodiversity of examined meadows) and for the carbon dioxide balance between the soil – vegetation and the atmosphere. The analysis will be performed for most important crop: wheat and maize, in 2 regions. Meadows will be examined for the Wieprz river valley.
The project will be implemented the stages of research and development of the remote sensing monitoring system, ground and air-born investigations, and design of a decision support system for precision farming.
The Institute of Plant Protection – National Research Institute is a co-performer of the task WP 4 “Assessment of the phytosanitary condition of crops. Ground and air research”. The aim of the WP 4 is to identify the occurrence and infection degree in crops (maize and wheat) by agrophages (weeds, diseases, and/or pests). The investigations are indispensable for calibration and validation of a system interpreting hyperspectral spectra recorded from the gyrocopter in the context of assessment of phytosanitary status.
