The book describes applications of the technology related to crop health or potential yield, soil conditions, weed infestations, etc. Image data can yield vital information about the variability of these conditions with respect to location. Agricultural producers can use this kind of information to optimise their management decisions with respect to location, thus maximizing profit and minimizing environmental effects.
