"Raman remote sensing in agriculture: preliminary results"


Dr. Jian Zhang
Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China

ABSTRACT 

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information without making physical contact with the object. It is widely used in many agricultural applications such as monitoring crop health and growth condition. Raman spectroscopy can reveal fingerprints of important chemicals and molecules that cannot be detected in traditional remote sensing. In this talk, I will introduce our preliminary results on Raman remote sensing. The Raman spectra of corn leaves stressed by saline are compared with the traditional hyper-spectrum. Some prospective about high throughput phenotyping with remote sensing and farm research will also be presented.
