Summary
Abstract: The Grapevine Remote sensing Analysis of Phylloxera Early Stress
(GRAPES) Project of NASA Ames Research Center measured the effects of
the phylloxera root-louse on California vineyards. Leaf spectral
differences were observed with the CASI sensor. Data was correlated
by GIS to locate active infestation and predict future spread of
infestation. The most significant discovery of the project is that
early, pre-visual stages of infestation may be detectable by remote
sensing late in the growing season. GRAPES is a practical use of
remote sensing to help California agriculture deal with a problem that
could cause losses of a billion dollars.
