I was happy to interview Anne recently and to discuss her work using UAS- and satellite-based imagery to support crop management decisions. Anne’s ability to effectively use this technology on the diverse crops of the Willamette Valley is impressive and at the end she shares her hopes for the next five years of precision agriculture in the region.
Taylor Bates, a recent MS graduate from OSU’s plant pathology program, discusses his research detecting grey mold on hemp using UAS imagery and machine learning on our first podcast episode (36:13).
Because our ability to hold workshops has been limited by Coronavirus restrictions, we’re launching a podcast this Spring. We’re planning to start with a few episodes of instructional content to get everyone on the same page. Then we’ll interview agricultural researchers and growers who use UAS in the field.
We plan to keep episodes short and snappy. A podcast format makes it possible to learn while you travel between fields or drive a tractor. We’ll post supplemental graphics and information here for the things that aren’t so easy to learn by audio.
Is there a topic you would like to hear covered? Contact us to let us know.
We are pleased to announce our OSU Extension publication.
You can now read Unmanned Aerial Systems: A guide for finding the right system for your Oregon farm. This guide shows growers how a UAS can benefit their agricultural operation. Learn how to set goals, buy equipment, and get in the air!
