MONITORING AGRICULTURE FROM SPACE
Widespread Application of Sustainable Precision Agriculture Practices in Southeastern Anatolia Project Region
In the scope of Widespread Application Of Sustainable Precision Agriculture Practices in Southeastern Anatolia Project Region (GAP), funded by Ministry of Industry and Technology-Southeastern Anatolia Project (GAP) Regional Development Administration, in order to reach the optimum yield rates by applying the right agricultural inputs (fertilizers, water and pesticide etc.), at the right location, right time and right rate, precision agriculture applications are carried out.
Variable rate fertilization was executed by using UAV and satellite imagery resulting in the fertilization use by 25% in test fields.
By using remote sensing algorithms with the Precision Agriculture Application Software developed within the scope of the project:
- Variable Rate Fertilization
- Anomaly Detection
- Crop Mapping
- Weed Detection
- Crop Yield Forecasting
Precision agriculture studies are carried out.
These precision agriculture analysis are available to the farmers and consultants in the Southeastern Anatolia Region via Farmer-Agricultural Consultant Web Interface in order to monitor development of their crops to optimize their crop yields.
