Abstract: Thermal imaging innovation has transformed into an important technique in all fields as a result of its non-ruinous, non-contact method to choose thermal properties and highlights of any object/zone of interest. It is a procedure of improving the permeability of objects in a dark environment by detecting the objects infrared radiation and shaping an image based on that obtained data. This method will be useful in all fields where temperature difference helps in analyzing the area/object. The potential use of this technique in the agricultural field includes irrigation scheduling, soil properties mapping, plant disease detection, crop yield estimation, evaluating the maturity of the crop, etc. This paper briefly reviews some of the works on thermal imaging for agricultural applications.
Keywords: Thermal Imaging, Agriculture, Irrigation Scheduling, Remote Sensing.
