Agroscope Wins Outstanding Paper Award


Researchers from Agroscope and ETH Zurich, together with Gamaya, have won the SPECTRO EXPO Outstanding Paper Award.

2021 Outstanding Paper Award

The ‘SPECTRO EXPO – Science, Technology and Applications’ took place this year as an online event from 24 to 26 March 2021. With seven hundred participants from thirty-five countries, scientific workshops, various tutorials and a data-analysis challenge, this event is one of the most important for remote-sensor and spectroscopy users in science.
Gregor Perich, Alice Wieser and Frank Liebisch from Agroscope/ETH Zurich won the Outstand Paper Award together with Patrick Meyer, who was doing an internship at the startup Gamaya, for their conference paper. Entitled Proximal and drone-based hyperspectral sensing for crop nitrogen status detection in historic field trials, the paper was praised as an excellent example of the interaction of science, technological innovation and applied research. In addition to spectroscopy technology, the paper was based on the oldest fertiliser trial in Switzerland, the Zurich Organic Fertiliser Experiment (ZOFE). According to Frank Liebisch, “Such experiments represent an efficient way of calibrating new measurement and analysis technologies.”
