Existing methods to detect crop water stress are expensive and difficult to use for large areas in rural drylands. In the framework of the DESIRE project, Wisse Beets and Jeremy Croes discovered that visible light remote sensing using handheld digital cameras offers a promising alternative to detect crop water stress. The method was tested in the DESIRE study sites in the Volgograd and Saratov Region, Russia. This area suffers from alkalinization caused by excessive irrigation practices in the past 50 years.
