Research Project: Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Satellite Remote Sensing Data to Evaluate Forage Yield and Quality

Location: Dairy Forage Research

Project Number: 5090-21500-002-014-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2022
End Date: Feb 28, 2027

To develop and test quantitative models for predicting alfalfa yield and nutritive value using multispectral (UAV, Satellite) and hyperspectral (UAV) data.

The models will be developed using multitask deep learning for evaluating the relationships among publicly-available satellite remote sensing imagery, UAV-based multispectral and hyperspectral imagery, and field nutritive and yield measurements.
