Project:

APPLICATION OF AERODISTANCE-SPECTROMETRIC METHODS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF CHEMICAL ELEMENTS IN OAT CROPS

Intro

Have you ever wondered of having a superpower of seeing through the walls? If yes, then you will really like our new toy. Just take a look!

How does it work?

The truth hides in the light. During the project, specific ranges of the electromagnetic radiation light spectrum are identified in the laboratory and in field conditions. This allows to see and track the levels of mineral nutrients and water in oat plants. Laboratory research and chemical analysis of plants will allow to determine the peculiarities of the spectrum of light reflected by oats at different growth stages in the presence of water scarcity, as well as to solve complex problems of nutrient supply of crops in the presence of different soil properties.

Ok… How does the magic happen?

  • Light spectrum in oat crops under field conditions is analyzed (crops are photographed using unmanned aerial vehicles using spectral photography technologies).
  • The spectral differences of plants growing under conditions of deficiency of various chemical nutrients are evaluated.
  • Changes in the spectral of plants growing in an unfavorable conditions are evaluated
  • The vegetation index (VI) of oat crops is determined at the main stages of plant development under field conditions.
  • Found in which sections of the light spectrum and their combinations the amounts of light reflected by oats change when they are exposed to stress due to nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium deficiency.
  • Found in which sections of the light spectrum and their combinations the amounts of light reflected by oats change when plants are stressed due to the lack of mineral nutrients (iron, manganese, zinc, copper.

So what..?

The project establishes reliable correlations between the chemical composition of oat plants (microelements, macro elements, water) and images of the same plants recorded by hyper spectral video cameras.

Why is this needed?

We have already developed a unique technology that can determine the supply of mineral nutrients to plants from the image of the plant (can you believe that?). Now, based on this technology, a precision crop production system is being developed. It includes crop monitoring, analysis of remote and laboratory research data and the development of a plant diagnostic-agrochemical model.
