Agrogeophysics is an emerging research field. What are the applications, potential and future research needs? Come and discover with us.
About this Event
The challenges in agriculture are enormous. We have to produce enough food while safe-guarding our environment for future generations. A better understanding of the nature of underlying processes and interactions in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum of our agro-ecosystems is crucial. Geophysical tools have the potential to characterize and quantify these processes non-invasively from plot to landscape scale. Nevertheless, a number of challenges remain for geophysical results to be fully exploited by decision-makers and other scientific communities. In this seminar, we will explore ongoing research in the field of agrogeophysics, discuss potential applications and highlight future research needs.
Guidelines for variable rate irrigation and nitrogen fertilization in Potato
The objective of the POTENTIAL project was to increase N and water utilization in potato by co-scheduling of fertilizer N and irrigation water. The results demonstrate high potential to combine different remote sensing data in a complementary approach to determine spatio-temporarily the fertilization and irrigation needs of potato. Results of the POTENTIAL project are summarized in a manual with guidelines for variable rate irrigation and fertilization in potato which is presented at a seminar on 17/03/2020 at The Palace of the Royal Academies in Brussels
