Agricultural Remote Sensing Basics (AE1262)

When farmers or ranchers observe their fields or pastures to assess their condition without physically touching them, it is a form of remote sensing. Observing the colors of leaves or the overall appearances of plants can determine the plant’s condition. Remotely sensed images taken from satellites and aircraft provide a means to assess field conditions without physically touching them from a point of view high above the field.

Ground Application of Fungicide for Suppression of Fusarium Head Blight in Small Grains

Ground Application of Fungicide for the Suppression of Fusarium Head Blight in Small Grains - AE1314

Fusarium head blight (FHB) has caused considerable income loss for wheat and barley growers during the past 15 years. Estimates of crop loss to growers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota are signifi cant. Serious yield and quality losses from FHB occur whenever wet weather coincides with the heading and fl owering stages of the crop.
