Remote sensing, such as capturing imagery via cameras mounted on UAVs, has attracted significant attention in the contemporary digital agriculture landscape. While there are ample commercial offerings for remotely sensed data, there are few - if any - commercially available platforms offering actionable agronomic decisions from remotely sensed data. In this episode, the FarmBits team has flipped the script and put your normal hosts - Samantha and Jackson - on the other side of the mic to discuss their graduate research which has involved leveraging remote sensing data for near real-time, in-season nitrogen management. The episode begins with a discussion of Samantha and Jackson's research, and continues into a conversation about the challenges of remote sensing for nitrogen management, the implication of their research, and how these remote sensing for nitrogen management might be effectively scaled to overcome barriers to adoption. The topics discussed in this episode are relevant to the modern digital agriculture landscape and are intended to generate thoughts about what is necessary to bring actionable decisions out of remote sensing data.
