About the Video:
Farming in a small-scale, resource-poor farming system is majorly dependent on the traditional knowledge of farmers, with non-judicial, time-consuming and labour-intensive agricultural practices commonly implemented, leading to low productivity and degradation of resources. Scale-independent precision agricultural (PA) practices offer great opportunities for improvement in the present context of sustainability and climate variability. Using geographic information and communication technology (Geo-ICTs) principles, PA provides the opportunity for a farmer to apply the right input, in the right amount, at the right time, at the right location, and in the right manner. To collect timely, high-resolution data, ground-based, drone-based, airborne, and spaceborne image acquisition and interpretation techniques are required. These sensing mechanisms can identify stressed areas in real-time and, in many cases, asymptomatically – before the onset of visible stress, following corrective measures.
