Case Study: U of M Professor gains unparalleled agricultural crop insights

Ian MacRae, U of M Ph.D and Professor Department of Entomology, worked with Sentera to develop, manufacture, and deploy sensors that have refined the understanding of how insects and disease affect the spectral response of agricultural crops.

How they use Sentera

Ian needed specific, customized sensors to refine the understanding of how disease and insects affect the spectral response of agricultural crops.

  • “As our research continues, Sentera responds, ensuring we can get the customized sensors that we need to accurately and reliably collect the data we need.”

“We’ve done a considerable amount of research into how the soybean aphid damages crops and how that damage affects the reflectance of light wavelengths. Through our research, we identified three near infrared wavelengths that appeared to be specifically associated with soybean aphid damage. Sentera developed a sensor that was able to isolate those wavelengths.”
