Workshop Drones in agrofood: drone-based phenotyping for experimental fields

drone-based phenotyping for experimental fields

Phenotyping crops in experimental fields is a great example of where drone technology can offer excellent value for the agricultural sector. Drones allow us to measure plant traits of interest in a scalable and objective way. But what is phenotyping exactly? What are the possibilities and limitations? And how can I get started?

This workshop aims to inspire organizations from both the agricultural sector (seeds, agro-chemicals, biologicals, consultants, ... ) and drone sector with the aim to increase the knowledge and use of operational drone services for agricultural applications.

Irene Borra-Serrano
(ILVO) and Dries Raymaekers (VITO) will show you the possibilities of drone-base phenotyping technology to dynamically analyze crop performance in the field throughout the growing season.

Join this webinar to learn more about the use case, technology and how to get started.
