Dr Troy Jensen and Dr Alison McCarthy will present an overview of precision agriculture projects undertaken at the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture (NCEA) in the Australian Nut Industry. NCEA's research has included a machine vision-based yield monitor for macadamia nuts and geo-referencing in orchards. NCEA's research experience in other industries with potential application to the nut industry include site-specific sensing, automated irrigation application and machine vision-based weed and pest detection and management.
