The paper describes the proposed study that I am undertaking. The PhD focuses on the comparison of
imagery acquired from a low cost platform (possibly remote controlled aircraft) with other remote
sensing systems that are proposed to benefit crop managers and crop forecasters. This research will be
a two-step process.
