Remote sensing applications in tobacco yield estimation and the recommended research in Zimbabwe
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-10-28)
Tobacco crop area and yield forecasts are important in stabilizing tobacco prices at the auction floors. Tobacco yield estimation in Zimbabwe is currently based on statistical surveys and ground-based field reports.These ...
Spectral indices: In-season dry mass and yield relationship of flue-cured tobacco under different planting dates and fertiliser levels
This experiment investigated the relationship between tobacco canopy spectral characteristics and tobacco biomass. A completely randomized design, with plantings on the 15th of September, October, November, and December, ...
Accuracy assessment of MODIS fire products in African Savanna woodlands
(University of Zimbabwe, 2016-06)
Fire poses a continuous threat to forest ecosystems and can dramatically reduce valuable timber species in forest woodland areas. The occurrence of fire in Baikiaea plurijuga woodlands warrants the need of an active and ...
Assessment of the impact of landuse changes on the water quality of Incomati River, Southern Mozambique.
The growth of socio-economic activities such as irrigated agriculture and urbanization in the Lower Incomati River Basin in Mozambique is putting pressure on water quality in the catchment. The area between Xinavane and ...
Impact of Lantana Camara invasion on a cattle/wildlife ranch: A case of Imire Ranch, Wedza District, Zimbabwe
The impact of Lantana camara invasion in a mixed game/cattle ranch was assessed at Imire Ranch using remote sensing and ground truthing techniques. Vegetation communities of the ranch were classified and mapped as a way ...
Modelling spatial variability of soil nitrogen using geostatistical methods and remote sensing
The aim of this study was to explore the use of geostatistical approaches involving remote sensing data to model and map soil nitrogen variability for use in precision agriculture. Precision agriculture is a management ...
