The Ag Image Repository: A First Step in Accessible Precision Ag

So much of precision agriculture – such as precision spraying technology or weed-identifying apps – relies on images. 

That’s why PSA and GROW researchers are building a public, open-source repository filled with high-quality images of weeds, cover crops and cash crops, explains Steven Mirsky, a weed ecologist with USDA. 

Listen in as he explains what that image collection looks like and what kind of cameras the researchers are using to build this repository.
