Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: USING high altitude or space photography to identify crops has long been considered important for land use mapping, crop yield prediction, crop inventory, and disease identification and control. This study evaluates satellite imagery as an aid in controlling pink bollworm infestation through monitoring California's cotton production regulation program in the southern deserts. This was the initial and most obvious objective, but if further studies are successful, the potential of satellite monitoring programs for agriculture is unlimited.
