Aerial canopy temperature differences between fast- andslow-wilting soya bean genotypes


My lab has just published a paper detecting differences in soybean canopy temperature using an IR camera from an aerial platforms of a kite or tethered balloon (depending upon wind conditions). If interested, here is a link to the PDF.

My appreciation goes out to many of you on the KAP forum for your advice and help. There is a short note in the acknowledgment sections recognizing the form:

"... We also acknowledge the expertise of members of the Kite Aerial Photography User’s Forum ( who were a wonderful source of inspiration and assistance."



  • Larry,
    Congratulations on your paper! Good to know the forum helped you. KAP is a proven aerial mapping method but published results are rare. IR results even more so.

    There is great satisfaction in knowing the wind has done the work!
