NDSU Using Sensors to Identify Weed Infestations
A North Dakota State University project received an $85,500 research grant to identify which weeds are infesting specific crops, which parts of fields the weeds are infesting, and the degree of the weed problem. NDSU has teamed up with Sentera, a company that designs sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles, and software technologies. Project personnel will collect data on plants growing in university greenhouses as well as outdoor plot and field weed patches. Project results will help producers spot weed problems early in the growing season to ensure reduced weed competition and higher yields.
