Researchers in southern Victoria are taking to the skies to see if unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be used to help growers make timely interventions in canola establishment... Three sites were set up across southern Victoria in 2015 at Rokewood, Inverleigh and Winchelsea... There were six stages involved in the image processing: collection of colour infrared images; colour, texture and shape used to identify plants and create a binary image; self-learning algorithms used to detect larger and average-sized plants; the same algorithms then modified to detect small plants; the two images put together to calculate totals; and calculation of ground cover...
