Sensilize – see if land is good for planting without stepping foot on it

Sensilize program

We have been using drones and the like to learn more about the world we live in by letting us capture aerial views of places that we would otherwise miss out on and this is great! But we can do more with the technology. Sensilize uses drones to help farmers learn more about their crops for better production.

This process uses remotely collected data to give farmers feedback on their land. By remotely, we mean from the air. It uses reflected light spectroscopy in order to make inferences about the quality of the land below which can be used as valuable feedback about things like soil, water, and vegetation.

This is an interesting option for people who have large swatches of land that they are looking to develop into farmland. This sort of innovation can help even small farms become more productive with less work. It allows for quick data so decisions can be made about what to do with the land available. Check out the website for more information.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
