CLOVIS — Greater crop growth and yield are things all producers strive for. Now, New Mexico State University researchers are working on a method of monitoring peanut crops to help growers produce a healthier crop.
NMSU's Agricultural Science Center at Clovis is collaborating with Texas Tech University to use remote sensing on peanut crops to estimate the biophysical characteristics, such as ground cover, leaf area index, biomass and yield.
