In recent years there was an increasing interest in Earth Observation (EO) technologies for agronomical studies. In particular, EU-leaded program Copernicus and its Sentinel-2 mission boosted the exploitation of satellite data for land monitoring and precision agriculture practices.
Aim of the seminar is to make agronomy students aware of potentiality and limits of optical satellite data. Starting from experience and knowledge of CNR-IREA, several applications of EO data will be shown for the monitoring (e.g. water stress index estimation) and the management (e.g. variable rate application of agronomic inputs) of agricultural areas at the field and regional scales.
