NDVI has been one of the most commonly used vegetation indices in remote sensing since its introduction in the 1970s. With the increased availability of remotely sensed imagery from satellites and UAVs, more and more people have come to adopt NDVI in their activity beyond the scope of science. Agriculture is now the most popular industry leveraging such advantages of satellite data as large area coverage, accuracy of results, and high acquisition frequency, which means that territory as small as a single field or as huge as an entire country can be observed from space at a certain frequency.
The soil quality may differ from that stated in the documents. It depends on whether intensive technologies were used earlier that caused soil degradation. In assessing the feasibility of investment, it is necessary to take into account some other factors: the location of the site, the productivity of the field during previous years, as well as the topography and communications that go along.
The concept of sustainable agriculture (SA) can be described as a system of ecological farming practices, which is based on scientific innovations through which it is possible to produce healthy foods with respect for the land, air, water, and farmers’ health and rights.
Precision agriculture is the main element in today’s stage of agricultural revolution, which started in early 1900 with increasing of mechanization and proceeded in 1990 with new methods of genetic modification. Let’s first define what precision agriculture is.
