    What Agribusiness Data Can and Can't Tell You

    By Marjorie Valin

    Published Aug 2, 2021 

    In agribusiness, big data means collecting everything. The temperature of the air as you plant, the moisture of the kernel as you harvest, the exact coordinate of each weed you find; it all gets absorbed into the digital cloud, analyzed, and processed. The end result is that we know what seeds grow the best in different conditions, statistically speaking... With drones taking flight, we can target individual plants for pesticide applications... Having worked on dispatch software for equipment managers, communication software, ordering software, portfolio recommendations, and generally the entire pipeline of precision agriculture, we’ve seen a need to connect each of these components to provide a higher-order, holistic approach...

    Will we see automated drone sprayers in the future?

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Feb 24, 2021 

    What is the likelihood that we will see drones spraying commodity value crops like corn and soybeans in the near future? Will this ever be cost effective and efficient enough to replace airplane spraying or even in field sprayers?

    Have the challenges of farming changed?

    By Ray Bohacz

    Updated Nov 23, 2021 

    Have the challenges of farming truly changed much over the decades or have our expectations changed? Has the affluence of our nation since WWII impacted our perception of agriculture when compared to 70 years ago? Do we need/want more now to feel that we are successful? As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am sincerely interested in your thoughts on these questions. Thank you and please write as long a response as you deem necessary.

    Identification of Citrus Trees from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Imagery Using Convolutional Neural Networks

    Authors: Ovidiu, John Cherbini, Robert Johnson, Andy Lyons and Maggi Kelly

    Journal: Drones 2018, 2(4), 39

    Publisher: MDPI

    Remote sensing is important to precision agriculture and the spatial resolution provided by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is revolutionizing precision agriculture workflows for measurement crop condition and yields over the growing season, for identifying and monitoring weeds and other applications. Monitoring of individual trees for growth, fruit production and pest and disease occurrence remains a high research priority and the delineation of each tree using automated means as an alternative to manual delineation would be useful for long-term farm management. In this paper, we detected citrus and other crop trees from UAV images using a simple convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm, followed by a classification refinement using superpixels derived from a Simple Linear Iterative Clustering (SLIC) algorithm. The workflow performed well in a relatively complex agricultural environment (multiple targets, multiple size trees and ages, etc.) achieving high accuracy (overall accuracy = 96.24%, Precision (positive predictive value) = 94.59%, Recall (sensitivity) = 97.94%). To our knowledge, this is the first time a CNN has been used with UAV multi-spectral imagery to focus on citrus trees. More of these individual cases are needed to develop standard automated workflows to help agricultural managers better incorporate large volumes of high resolution UAV imagery into agricultural management operations.
