In the past few years, precision agriculture has become very popular, and with that, the expression “remote sensing” has been said a lot, usually followed by “improvement”, “higher yields”, “decision making”, “cost reduction” and many other words that attract the eyes of farmers and people involved in the agricultural world. We can anticipate that all of those words are rightfully connected to remote sensing in agriculture, and in this article, we will explain you the reasons for that.
The components of soil radically vary the nutrients available for absorption by the plant. The element in larger proportion are the mineral particles. Those affects the texture, water flow and the capacity of nutrients retention. In this article you will find the differences between the main type of soils and how your crops interact with it underground.
1. Why do we use the term “relative”? Since early times, the influence of the moisture content in the air on the plants’ growth has been observed. Originally only the actual amount of water vapour in the air was measured, obtaining the absolute humidity value. It is expressed as grams of vapour per cubic meter […]
