PhD, Centre for Regional and Rural Futures

I am a 2nd year Phd student at Deakin University’s Centre for Regional and Rural Futures (CeRRF) based in Griffith. My work is is based around remote sensing of irrigated crops. I have a background in exploration geology and have grown up on a horticultural property in the MIA.

Where: International Convention Centre, Sydney – Room E5. 10

When: Day 2 – Thursday, 14 June 2018, 16.30 – 17.00

Abstract Outline: The advancement of precision application of water and nutrients allows agricultural decisions to be made (and inputs to be managed) at a resolution that is close to that of individual plants. The application of drone based multispectral sensing is employed to provide insights into plant growth or stress variables, but also to define separate management zones in heterogeneous treatment areas to optimise inputs.

This work investigates the practical application of commercially available drone based sensors in irrigated row-crop systems in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA).
