Instruments for crop monitoring

  1. 2. CROP MONITORING <ul><li>Measurement of performance . </li></ul><ul><li>Gaining better information, knowledge and skills. </li></ul><ul><li>PRO-active rather than RE-active. </li></ul><ul><li>Two means of assessment. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>TRADITIONAL: </li></ul><ul><li>* Volume and frequency. </li></ul><ul><li>* Weed types and densities. </li></ul><ul><li>MODERN: </li></ul><ul><li>* Optical sensing. </li></ul><ul><li>*Leaf color charts and green seeker techs. </li></ul>
  3. 4. AIMS <ul><li>Identifying the problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Suitability of new tech. </li></ul><ul><li>Effects of changes. </li></ul><ul><li>Interpret crop performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Achieve profitable yields. </li></ul>
  4. 5. INSTRUMENTS <ul><li>PLANT MOISTURE VESSEL. </li></ul><ul><li>WATCHDOG WIRELESS SYSTEM. </li></ul><ul><li>LEAF WETNESS SENSORS. </li></ul><ul><li>LIGHT SENSOR RANGE. </li></ul>
  5. 6. PLANT MOISTURE VESSEL <ul><li>Moisture potential. </li></ul><ul><li>Digital pressure readout. </li></ul><ul><li>Large chamber. </li></ul><ul><li>Sap extraction. </li></ul><ul><li>Effective irrigation water </li></ul><ul><li>Management. </li></ul>
  6. 7. WATCHDOG <ul><li>Uses remote sensor. </li></ul><ul><li>Measures temperature and </li></ul><ul><li>Humidity. </li></ul><ul><li>Receives transmissions and </li></ul><ul><li>Displays. </li></ul><ul><li>Alarms when in detects </li></ul><ul><li>Violation. </li></ul>
