Use of drones strengthens agriculture in dealing with climate change - tutorial video
30 June 2020
Globally, April 2020 was (along April 2016), the warmest April on record. As in many other countries worldwide, another drought would considerably harm the agricultural sector, which already suffered heavy yield losses in the past years.
Internationally, digital technologies are becoming a crucial tool to establish support mechanisms in coping with increased climate risks. In scope of the projects DETECCT and KlimALEZ, IAMO contributes to this process with the development of new digital tools for drought risk management on farm and policy level.
As part of their project activities, IAMO researchers have been creating a tutorial video to introduce the use of drones in agriculture to the Central Asian audience. In the video tutorial, Dr. Lena Kuhn, Dr. Ihtiyor Bobojonov and Shovkat Khodjaev report on their experience of using drones for estimation of vegetation growth and yield. A version of the video in Uzbek language has been published recently and can be accessed here.
