55 Symposium--Weed ID: Can You Do It? A Robot Can

Oral Session
ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems This symposium will feature engineers and biologists who are working in the cutting edge field of sensor development and automation for real-time plant identification. The technology boom is revolutionizing management aspects of both crop and non-crop systems, including advanced target recognition and application systems. Growers will soon have a plant identification monitor sitting next to their yield, soil moisture and nutrient monitors in their tractor cab. In natural areas, outdoor enthusiasts, conservationists, and resource managers will have the ability to identify invasive and other important plant species using identification technology that is also equipped with communication and environmental monitoring devices.
