How to gather and view plant health data.
PHASE I Drone technology in agriculture: How to gather and view plant health dataThe agricultural sector is currently dealing with a number of difficulties due to a rapidly expandingpopulation, rising resource constraint, and significant climate change. These are crucial problems totakeintoaccount since they could endanger ecosystems, natural resources, and human livelihoods in general. Agronomiceffects on nutrition security's fundamental components, such as "food accessibility, food availability, foodusage,and food systems' stability," may have an impact on economic and social results. Anywhere can provideitemsand sensors with Internet access for the information gathering on crop health and humidity levels. As aresult,farmers may access data via tablets and cellphones thanks to manual and automatic solutions. AccordingtoThompson (2019), the use of drones (UAVs) in agriculture, particularly in the United Kingdom, canincreasecrops and lessen the need for pesticides. The use of agriculture drones is advantageous for "agriculturefarmanalysis, time savings, improved agricultural yield, GIS mapping integration, and imaging of crophealthStatus," according to Puri et al. (2017). Grand View Research estimates that the commercial market for agricultural drones will "reach USD 3770 million by 2024." Phase I: o Focus question Drone imaging for agricultural scouting makes it possible to assess plant health, spot cropstress, andquickly get rid of dangers to your land. But where do you even begin? With the most recent drone technology, onecan be able to quickly determine crop variability as well as also evaluate the health of the plants. Drone maps that incorporate plant health algorithms like the NDVI can assist to emphasize variability and make it simpler to identify crop stress; however, thereisalotofmisunderstanding regarding the NDVI, and it is also quite a controversial topic. o Task Definition For many, it can be hard to determine where to start or how you should start collecting actionableinsights with your drone. In this particular report, we will address some of the most common questions, like“what kind of camera should I buy” and “what is the difference between NDVI, VARI and false-NDVI.”Near infrared (NIR), green, and red light are reflected and absorbed in large quantities by healthy plants, respectively
