With a growing global population and accelerating climate change, systematic assessment and monitoring of crop diseases is urgently required to ensure food security and production. However, current dietary transitions inclined towards vegetables such as tomatoes are expected to increase while effective crop disease monitoring and assessment methods...
Invasive alien plant species (IAPs) drive anthropogenic global environmental change by threatening native species communities and ecosystems. For instance, the Eucalyptus species are notoriously known for releasing toxic chemicals which impedes the growth of indigenous plants which usually results in severe erosion. It is, therefore, important and...
The aim of this study was to test the spectral settings of the forthcoming EnMAP and HyspIRI hyperspectral imagers in estimating equivalent water thickness of native grass grown under different management practices, using two regression ensembles (partial least squares regression (PLSR) and sparse partial least squares regression (SPLSR). Results s...
