Course 5: Crop Knowledge Sharing


About Course

In this course, we want to share with you our knowledge of agronomy and crop behavior. Alongside Frederic Baret, one of the world's leading expert in remote sensing and observation of vegetation from large distances and small distances, we present you how plants convert sunlight into biomass through a very interesting and scientifically shaped video series.

What Will I Learn?

  • Understand crop behavior
  • What's PAR, FIPAR, RUE
  • How plants convert sun into biomass through the photonsynthesis
