Dr Luz Angelica Suarez is a postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Applied Agricultural Remote Sensing Centre (AARSC) at the University of New England.

Through the Hort Innovation-funded project Adoption of precision systems technology in vegetable production’ (VG16009), AARSC-UNE with the support of the QLD Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF), tested satellite remote sensors for yield forecasting purposes, across multiple growing regions and commercial vegetable farms.

During a one-hour webinar from 12noon (AEST) on Thursday 6 August, Dr Suarez will discuss her research that is aiming to assist growers in the evaluation and adoption of remote sensing technologies, as a mechanism to optimise management practices.

This presentation will cover the general approach and results from the project she ran on the implementation of high-resolution multispectral satellite imagery.

This imagery was used to predict total carrot root yield in three growing regions at the field level, and to investigate yield variability within those fields.
