Geospatial and Precision Technologies For Sustainable Agriculture (tec4AGR0) Group

Geospatial and Precision Technologies For Sustainable Agriculture (tec4AGR0) Group

The research activity of this group aims to achieve a better understanding of the factors affecting the spatial and temporal development of the major crop pests, using monitoring tools and technologies that allow obtaining and processing geospatial data (proximate and remote sensors, GIS and specific software). The joint application of new technologies and Decision Support Systems allows this information to be transferred to intelligent pest control.


Our scientific objectives are focused on three areas:
  • Development of tools for obtaining and processing spatial information on crops and their major pests, such as:
    1. Monitoring technologies based on remote sensing - drones
    2. Deep learning
  • Application of new monitoring technologies and Decision Support Systems (DDS) to intelligent weed control; for example:
    1. Long-term evaluation of site-specific weed management systems
    2. Use of DDSs to translate information into weed management decisions
  • Study of factors affecting the spatial and temporal development of major crop pests using geospatial technologies in combination with environmental and agronomic data
    1. Influence of site conditions (climate, soil) and crop development on pest problems
    2. Distribution and spread of pest organisms and pesticide-resistant populations on a landscape scale
