Sugarcane: Maximizing Yields with Multispectral Imaging Technologies

By Candace Pollock-Moore, University of Georgia

Farmer Gerald McCollam of Ellendale Farms in Houma, LA studied multispectral imaging technologies to predict sucrose yield in sugarcane as it correlates with various levels of nitrogen application. The idea is that such technologies can be used to align optimal nitrogen applications with maximum sugarcane yields.
