Advancing Knowledge Through Turfgrass Center Research – Peacock

— Written By

The use of drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) is a popular topic in the news, but ever wonder how they may help manage your turfgrass? Crop and Soil Science Professor Dr. Charles Peacock is investigating drones equipped with sensors that are capable of measuring reflected light that are undetectable by the human eye. By processing these images, a turfgrass manager may be able to determine turfgrass health and detect diseases before they can be readily seen by a person.
