Remote sensing can provide data that help identify and monitor crops. When these data are organized in a Geographical Information System along with other types of data, they become an important. The growing number of published literature shows that remote sensing for agriculture has now reached a certain level of knowledge (Fig.

1, left) and that the interest in agricultural applications is exponentially growing, especially since (Fig. 1, right). This increasing literature also reflects the substantial progress in relevant technology that has emerged, including numerous sensors Cited by: Vietnam is a country with great potential for agricultural development, however, over the years, data on agricultural production has come to farmers, businesses, insurance organizations, and major planners.

Basics of Remote Sensing for Agricultural Applications Introduction When farmers or ranchers observe their fields or pastures to assess their condition without physically touching them, it is a form of remote sensing.

Observing the colors of leaves or the overall appearances of plants can. According to India’s National Remote Sensing Agency, “Remote Sensing is the technique of acquiring information about objects on the earth’s surface without physically coming into contact with them.”. PRINCIPLE: The energy comes down to the earth and a part is reflected and detected by a sensor; The detection is captured as data, which is sent to the receiving station.

The remote view of the sensor and the ability to store, analyze, and display the sensed data on field maps are what make remote sensing a potentially important tool for agricultural producers. Agricultural remote sensing is not new and dates back to the s, but recent technological advances have made the benefits of remote sensing accessible.

The remote view of the sensor and the ability to store, analyse, and display the sensed data on field maps are what make remote sensing a potentially important tool for agricultural producers.

Remotely sensed images can be used to identify nutrient, diseases, water deficiency or surplus, weed infestations, insect, hail, wind, herbicide damage.

Ground remote sensing to detect nitrogen deficiency. The use of low-cost ground remote sensing methods to schedule nitrogen fertilization may contribute to more sustainable agriculture. Ground remote sensing instruments are very useful for small-scale operational field monitoring of biotic and abiotic stress : Salima Yousfi, José Fernando Marin Peira, Gregorio Rincón De La Horra, Pedro V.
