KAUST Research: Improving water security for food crops

With groundwater resources depleting, and global food production increasing, KAUST scientists are using remote sensors to measure water use in agriculture. Shoe-box sized satellites called CubeSats capture daily images of agricultural fields in high-resolution detail. Applying advanced machine learning techniques and big-data analysis, the information is used to improve crop management—from water usage to plant and soil conditions. Efficient crop …
