NeWMap: Enhanced farm-specific NutriEnt and Water stress Maps

 

UK Partners:  Dr Jinghao XUE, University College London; Prof Wen-Hua CHEN, Loughborough University

Chinese Partners: China Agricultural University

Project Summary:

This project aims to address the challenge that there is a need of field-specific advice for small-scale farming in China. About 70-80% of Chinese farmers have less than 0.5 ha, and it is very difficult and labour intensive to conduct field specific assessment in order to facilitate timely crop management, particularly fertiliser and water management. To mitigate this issue, we aim to integrate UAV data and field-specific and local environment data collected from small-scale farms to automatically provide a nutrient assessment map and a water stress map.
