On 26th July 2016, Life+ programme representative Anna Clintock and HESOFF supervisor Zbigniew Karaczun visited oak stands in Płyta Krotoszyńska where our QUERCUS Multispectral Platform takes aerial photographs.
The Institute of Aviation was represented by: Sylwia Nasiłowska, PhD, Mariusz Kacprzak and Karol Rotchimmel. The Forest Research Institute was represented by professor Tomasz Oszako.
The project HESOFF is focused on integration of such innovative technologies with innovative methods for forest cultivation. The following two main objectives are: estimation of phosphites effectiveness as elicitors of trees resistance against invasive phytopathogens belonging to genera of Phytophthora
and implementation and introduction into practice new methods of assessment of states of a forest and the effectiveness of cultivation through Imageries from Stratospheric Long Endurance UAV (SLE UAV).
HESOFF project is financed by the European Commission, National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management, Institute of Aviation and Forest Research Institute.
