Research Focus

The focus of this project is to identify and work closely with soybean farmers in order to implement Ag precision tools.


  • Explore the potential use of satellite imagery to identify productivity zones and evaluate soybean development across the growing season at the on-farm scale.
  • Explore relationships between satellite imagery data and ground-truth based plant traits, yield.


Results will be updated once research is complete.


Working together with Extension professionals to understand the main factors limiting soybean yields at the field-scale benefits farmers.
