Our UAS & Cherry Leaf Spot project is an exciting collaboration between NMC and MSU through which weekly imagery will be collected using unmanned aircraft.  Students enrolled in the NMC/MSU Fruit and Vegetable Crop Management program will analyze the data each week as a means to determine how Cherry Leaf Spot (a fungal pathogen) can be better managed by cherry growers.
