UAV-Based high resolution thermal imaging for vegetation monitoring and plant phenotyping using ICI 8640 P, FLIR Vue Pro R 640 and thermoMap Cameras

The growing popularity of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in recent years, along with decreased cost and more accessibility of both UAVs and thermal imaging sensors, has led to the widespread usage of this technology, especially for precision agriculture and plant phenotyping. There are several thermal camera systems in the market becoming more available at a low cost. However, their efficacy and accuracy in various applications has not been tested.

Comparative Aerial and Ground Based High Throughput Phenotyping for the Genetic Dissection of NDVI as a Proxy for Drought Adaptive Traits in Durum Wheat

High-throughput phenotyping platforms (HTPPs) provide novel opportunities to more effectively dissect the genetic basis of drought-adaptive traits. This genome-wide association study (GWAS) compares the results obtained with two Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and a ground-based platform used to measure Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) in a panel of 248 elite durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. ssp. durum Desf.) accessions at different growth stages and water regimes.
