Low Cost UAV Fights Disease Devastating Apple Crops - http://www.arisplex.com/analysis/low-cost-uav-fights-disease-devastating-apple-crops/


"Vegetation is often damaged by disease, pests, or other threats that can be hard to detect before they become a serious problem. One such menace, a fungus known as “apple scab”, can render significant portions of an apple orchard’s yield unsellable. University of New Hampshire (UNH) researchers are developing a solution to fight the scourge of apple scab using multi-spectrum, infrared images captured with a low cost, GPS enabled unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)."
