There is great interest in using UAV technology to scout fields for nutrient and pest management and pest problems. UAVs are a potential platform to carry optical and other sensors to help identify problems. This webinar will address what sensors are needed for these uses, what sensors are currently being used in the field, and are the sensors really ready for the field? Do the data exist to interpret the results of the technology? Should CCAs recommend using UAVs, and if so, with what caveats?

Speaker Information:
Dr. Brian Arnall
Associate Professor
Oklahoma State University

Dr. Arnall’s extension, teaching, and research efforts are focused on precision technologies and nutrient management in all of Oklahoma’s cropping systems with an emphasis in site specific techniques. He works closely with extension educators and industry personnel to improve nutrient management practices in Oklahoma that will lead to increased profitability of Oklahoma producers. Dr. Arnall has been involved in sensor based technologies, remote sensing and variable rate application for more than ten years. He currently has several ongoing studies focused precision technologies including the developed of methods to use sensor based technologies in canola production and ground-truthing the use of sensors and VRT technologies in wheat, corn and sorghum production.
