eTraining course: Crop models and remote sensing for water management in agricultural systems
Egerton University (Crops, Horticulture & Soils Department)
is partnering with FutureWater and HiView (The Netherlands)
to conduct a tailor-made training on Crop models and
remote sensing for water management in agricultural systems.
Aim of the training
This first stage of the training course will be online and will focus on:
1. Real Water Savings in Agricultural Systems including potential field interventions
2. The use of WAPOR to access remotely sensed derived data
3. The use of flying sensors (drones) in agriculture
It is envisaged that the use of drones mounted with (e.g., NDVI) sensors will be of great use in
the near future: for monitoring crop growth and providing real time data for analyses &
modeling for use in (informed) decisions making (in crop production systems).
