Keywords:phytosanitary monitoring, weed, ground and remote survey
Unmanned aerial vehicles have a number of advantages over traditional methods of phytosanitary monitoring of weeds. This is an opportunity for an operational survey of the entire field area, with the identification of weed vegetation foci, reducing the time of accounting and increasing the number of accounting points. Detailed records of the identified foci from the different viewing angles, to account for weeds in tall crops can be performed using the helicopter-type devices. The data of the field crops infestation studies in several farms allow for extrapolating the results of studies obtained on a station fields to the cultivated steppe areas of the Krasnodar Territory.
