Paper Abstract

The potential for remotely sensed data being used by farmers in making day-to-day management decisions has not been fully realized because the data have generally not been available in real-time. Furthermore, the relationships between spectral data and crop and soil properties have yet to be incorporated into the expert systems necessary for rapid data analysis and interpretation. This review details some major requirements for a farm oriented remote sensing system, and evaluates the state-of-the-art concerning relationships between spectral data and crop and soil properties. Current and proposed remote sensing systems geared toward farm management are discussed.
