Using Thermography In Precision Agriculture

Changes in soil texture, topography, wind, and even the time of day can all affect crop field variability. All of these factors can affect how water infiltrates and holds into the soil profile. These variables need to be taken into consideration in irrigation scheduling. This video explains how Kansas State’s department of biological and agricultural engineering used thermal imaging technology to detect field variability and to help establish an irrigation schedule.
