Operational Implementation Plans

Plans for Next Growing Season:
Next growing season, will you maintain your current approach, or modify the approach? If you plan to modify, please describe your new approach.
In the season 2017 we plan to continue usage of the same approaches, and we plan to test usage of UAV for field crop data collection.

 

In situ Data:

Crop type. Discrimination among crop types in georeferenced plots (27 plots). Frequency: once per crop season.
Crop status was defined one time per month using hemispherical photo analysis by CanEye software.
Soil moisture content. Measurements in selected georeferenced representative points. Frequency: before crop sowing, in the middle of the season, after crop harvesting (near 30 points).
Crop phenology. Visual determination of phenological states. Frequency: each month during the growing season (near 30 plots).
Soil erosion status (soil humus content). Samples collection in selected georeferenced representative points and analysis of humus content in laboratory. Frequency: once in the year, after the harvest (near 30 samples).
