Research areas

Precision Horticulture

- Physical properties of fresh fruit

- in-situ analysis of tree and fruit by means of spectral-optical (LiDAR, multi- and hyperspectral methods, time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy, laser-induced backscattering imaging)

- Applications of in-situ analysis in agronomic models (harvest management, prediction of fruit bearing capacity, irrigation in woody plants, anoxia in the root zone)
