NIR images in itself does not contain all the parameters required for further processing. We need to install an additional filter to alienate unnecessary parameters and allow the entry of only necessary spectrum. The camera sensor is designed in a way that it distributes all the spectrum received into three bands of Red, Green and… Read More Red Filter!!!
There are many cameras in the market ranging from digi cams to high profile DSLRs. But we require cameras that can capture NIR images of the plants which contains the required data for crop analysis. There are many cameras in the market which provides the capability to capture NIR images. I am going to show… Read More Multi-Spectral cameras required to take NIR images for crop analysis
GPS is Global Positioning System. This is system which provides timing and location data to anyone who has a GPS receiver in all weather condition and anywhere on the earth. This system was developed by USA in 1973 by launching satellites into the earth’s outer orbit. The GPS previously in the 1980s showed a drift… Read More The role of GPS in farming
Thousands of year ago, humans started farming to grow their own food. Humans started with wheat and barley as their first crops. Since then curiosity and technology has brought us so far in the fields of farming. At first, the recognition of soil was required to grow a particular crop. Then different crops came in,… Read More The Revolution of Farming
What is Shortwave Infrared(SWIR) Imagery? SWIR refers to a non-visible range of light falling between about 1400 and 3000 nanometers in wavelength, outside of the visible range. Due to the unique properties of minerals, man-made material, and other features, SWIR imagery can “see” objects in a way that is invisible to the naked eye and… Read More Role of SWIR(shortwave infrared) to reveal details used in crop analysis
Scientists have discovered that the plant health is directly proportional to the rays it reflects which is near-infrared rays. The plant receives different wavelength of rays from the atmosphere. It uses blue and red light to create food for the plants. The infrared rays received is partially absorbed and reflected back. Our eyes… Read More Plant Health vs IR rays
