Ground Truthing of Remote Sensing for Cotton Aphid (Aphis gossypii) and Spider Mites (Tetranychus sp.) in San Joaquin Valley Cotton

Dominic Reisig, Larry Godfrey, Kevin Keillor, and John Ojala


Multispectral and hyperspectral analysis from remote sensing, a precision tool in development, can detect differences in crop health. This information should be coupled with observations on the ground for ground-truthing of arthropod populations and other plant stress factors. This allows the information seen in the image to be associated with biological factors in the field. Hopefully the spectral data will provide information in a timely manner so that remedial measures can be taken and the use of remote sensing images can be integrated into arthropod management practices for producers of cotton in the San Joaquin Valley.
