Drones in cereal farming
​Our quadcopter and common wild oat

The project is a Rural Innovation Group (EIP), with participating researchers from the Molecular Plant Biology unit of the Department of Biochemistry and from the Department of Future Technologies. In addition, local farmers and a local drone service company participate in the project. We develop methods for field imaging and for automatic analysis of the images.

The fields under investigation are located in the Nousiainen-Mynämäki area near the village of Valpperi.
