B17: Let’s make sense of it – non-invasive sensing for food, agriculture and urban green spaces

Feedback form is now closed.
Remote sensing and multispectral imaging will revolutionize many aspects of human society, not least when it comes to plants and plant-derived products. In agriculture, these novel techniques are already now making an impact on plant breeding and precision agriculture. Similar rapid advances for monitoring are seen in food production to ensure quality and safety in an efficient way. In the urban environment remote sensing and multispectral imaging could help to keep track on the state of highly valuable urban trees. 
In this online webinar we want to identify the current status and compare the use of remote sensing within agriculture, food technology and urban spaces between South Africa and Sweden both in academia and industry. We will have presenters from both academia and the private sector in the three areas and will end off with a student panel discussing what they see as a future directions to go. 

Keywords: Remote sensing, agriculture, food quality, urban green spaces
