With an exponentially growing world population, the agriculture industry must deliver more food with less water and on less farm land. Aerial imaging from satellites and drones enable a new sophisticated science of farming, called precision agriculture. Our invited guest speaker, Dr. Jagmohan Bajaj, Vice President of Technology at Teledyne Imaging Sensors, will explain how aerial imaging systems can capture the optical signature of soil and plants with high geographical resolution and reveal information that can guide the planning and management of crops at precise locations to reach new levels of crop production and efficiency. Dr. Bajaj will show how aerial Imaging has the potential to revolutionize the art of farming.
