Studying Hops Growth with Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging

The Headwall Nano HP Hyperspectral Imager ready to scan hops plants in front of it

Hops are a perennial crop. Only the female hops plants grow the cones used for brewing beer. Production takes place in hops yards, and plants can grow up to seven meters in 70 days. It’s one of the fastest growing land plants. However, it is prone to pests and diseases which can be studied using hyperspectral remote sensing.
