Accelerating the Application and Adoption of Remote Sensing Decision Support in Northeastern Viticulture

Current plant disease detection frameworks are inefficient and inaccurate because they primarily rely on human detection via scouting – the process of physically visiting a field and looking for disease. By the time disease is discovered, the period of time when management intervention would be most effective has long passed. My research with the Gold lab combines remote sensing, high resolution satellite imagery, with environmental data to optimize disease detection in vineyards. Throughout the course of our project, I will design a novel disease prediction scheme that combines DMCast, an existing disease risk model, with spectroscopic imagery within a deep learning architecture. Once trained on historical data, this model can be integrated into computer vision techniques that extract insights from satellite imagery, creating a powerful framework for the future of vineyard disease management.
