Our team used multispectral aerial imagery as a tool for analyzing and diagnosing soil productivity for this precision agriculture research project. This technology proves to be a very good tool, combining the visible and the near infrared. It allows for the chlorophyll content in plants to be analyzed, which influences the biomass content. A strong presence of biomass is desired to improve crop yield. The soil composition can also be considered, in addition to the presence or absence of certain chemical elements that influence crop yield. Using aerial imagery therefore allows farmers to have an overview of their fields and therefore take the necessary actions.
