Spectral reflectance for in field sensing of crop canopies for precision husbandry of winter wheat - CE0130

Objective
1) To assess field factors likely to confound or otherwise compromise the presision of the in-field spectral reflectance measurements.

2) To grade factors in relation to their likely impact o the identification of key spectral signatures indicatice of:- a) canopy size, b) nutrient/chlorophyll content, c)disease ingress
