The platform for monitoring and analysis of cotton canopy nitrogen status and yield projection using calibrated aerial and satellite imagery (Phase 2, incoporation of NutriLOGIC)

This project, a continuation of CRDC Project FLUR1801, aims to improve the accuracy of the FluroSense on-line nitrogen management and water stress system providing access to calibrated satellite and aerial imagery and customised per-farm analytics. This system enables cotton growers to maximise nitrogen use efficiency of their crop by using analyses derived from information specific to the farm, and to objectively evaluate the risk of over fertilisation or waterlogging of the fields to help reduce undesirable environmental damage. To further assist in-season nitrogen application decisions, FluroSense Nitrogen Map will be enhanced with NutriLOGIC fertiliser recommendations that can be tailored to the requirements of each individual field using the tissue sampling information and management zones defined from the remote sensing imagery. The analyses of nitrogen and water use efficiency can provide the basis for ROI estimation to choose the best strategy from a financial perspective as well as serving as a compliance tool to demonstrate the considerations that the grower took when making the decisions around input application.
