Remote Sensing Technology for Production of Turfgrass and Ornamentals

Start Date
08/16/2018
End Date

Description
The production and maintenance of turfgrass and ornamentals requires substantial resources. Given the concern over the scarcity of water and environmental contamination with agrochemicals, we need to develop sustainable landscapes. The emerging role of remote sensing in the development of stress (drought, salt, heat, diseases, pests) tolerant turfgrass/ornamental varieties and of efficient management strategies to minimize the inputs needed for optimal production and maintenance of turfgrass and ornamentals will be discussed.
