Paper Abstract

Precision agriculture addresses the variability in crop growth and its underlying causes to achieve the optimal plant behavior or yield (quantity as well as quality). The physiological processes to be monitored can be at different scales like the subcellular level, the leaf, the whole plant, a field or a region. Reflectance spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy are the main techniques used for monitoring crop conditions. Imaging at different scales avoids that some spatially distributed phenomena are not observed. Hyperspectral or multi-spectral imaging and fluorescence imaging or a combination thereof yield vast amounts of data that require advanced analysis tools to yield usable information. The observations are frequently used in inverse modeling to identify underlying processes of growth, stress or infection.
