Application of spectral remote sensing in organic farming
In a national and international context the novel technical and scientific applications provided by remote sensing are getting more and more relevant. Applied remote sensing methods known in traditional agriculture can be used in organic farming as well. The remote sensing techniques; imaging and non-imaging spectroscopy are often called the chemical imaging in the international literature. This technique enables non-destructive chemical analyses without chemicals and can measure vegetation and soil parameters (moisture content, biophysical indices, phenology, biotic and abiotic tress, phytopathology etc.) The sensor (spectral camera, field spectrometer) can be hand-held, vehicle-based, air-borne (multicopter) or even space-borne (satellites). Spatial, temporal and chemical (spectral) resolution differ from platform to platform. Our project intends to identify those remote sensing solutions and methods that could be integrated successfully into the organic farming. The very first project analyses the relationship between spelt protein content and four different leaf fertilizers due to spectral footprints used in field spectroscopy and predictive models. Beyond field spectroscopy, the above-mentioned techniques are applicable in food quality control and food safety too.
My university studies began in 1995 at the University of Horticulture and Food Industry and continued with grants at the Humboldt University of Berlin (HUB) and at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU). I graduated with an MSc degree in Horticulture Engineering in 2001 and enrolled at the Budapest University of Technology for a second MSc in Geodesy and Geoinformatics. The same year I started my PhD studies as well. I earned my second MSc in 2004 and my PhD in 2006. My research fields are the development and application of the hyperspectral remote sensing in vegetation and soil analyses, mainly in agriculture. I have been working as a researcher and lecturer at universities in Germany (2006-2010: Halle, 2012:Ulm, 2013- Leipzig). Since 2010 I am working as a consultant for market leading international companies in the field of hyperspectral remote sensing. At ÖMKi I am responsible for the project: Application of spectral remote sensing in organic farming.
