The algorithms developed by our team allow us to generate, from high resolution infrared aerial photography, a map with information on the amount and location of weeds during early stages of growth, when it is difficult to detect them. The information is delivered quickly to those in charge of carrying out the necessary tasks to control the weeds. Some of the benefits of weed detection are the following:
- Early detection, specially in crops with fast canopy closure.
- Quantification of areas with weed problems.
- Weed controls are directed to specific zones (less use of herbicides).
