FERARI Quarterly Newsletter-June 2023
This study focuses on the validation of drone imagery analysis through on-the-ground data collection from FERARI field trials. To ensure data accuracy and enhance analysis consistency, FERARI deployed a comprehensive approach involving staff expertise in data collection activities. Akua and Angela were responsible for collecting agronomic parameters manually, while drone specialists Jephthah and Geoffrey integrated drone technology into the process. The drone successfully navigated FERARI trial fields, capturing high-resolution images and data efficiently. The study emphasizes the transformative impact of drone-assisted data collection in agriculture, making it more efficient, data-driven, and sustainable. The integration of drones provides real-time, reliable, and detailed data, facilitating informed decision-making in crop management practices.
