MultiModalPerspectivesWebinar: Advancing Sensing for Agriculture Research Evolution: Lab-Quality Data for Real-World Applications in Agricultural Research
Hosted by Headwall | Wednesday, August 18, 2021

The relationship between academia and commercial innovators has been paramount in the continuous development of hyperspectral imaging (HSI) devices and systems for remote-sensing applications in precision agriculture. Lab-quality remotely sensed data is mature for application in academic and commercial settings and is being taken directly to the field. Plant breeding is labor-intensive, which often means that it is slow, expensive, and subjective. Early adopters see positive impacts from the use of sensor-and-analytics ecosystems. The ability to enhance and even enable day-to-day monitoring promises valuable gains in insights and efficiencies. Continuous acquisition and exploitation of high-quality data with innovative commercial devices provide significant advantages in objective, rapid, and automated monitoring and phenotyping. Please join our discussion with Dr. Melba Crawford of Purdue University and Matthew Bechdol of GRYFN as we look at the relationships that are making it easier to utilize the data collected from these devices and how they are advancing agricultural science.

Webcast: Food Quality & Safety - Hyperspectral Imaging Shows Value… Literally!
Hosted by Headwall | June 29, 2021

Used extensively as a remote sensing technique in agricultural and environmental monitoring, hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is playing a more prominent role in food processing and other industrial monitoring applications. Combining spectral analysis with imaging creates a powerful technique that enhances the user’s ability to perform quality inspections of their product earlier in the workflow. Automation can also be applied in order to reduce reliance on manual tasks. In this presentation we will review HSI technology's strengths and limitations, as well as provide some valuable, practical tips on setting up a system and working with the collected data. This webcast focuses on applications and the value this powerful technique can add to food processing operations and other areas.
