Sanna Bergqvist
PhD student in Crop Science


I am a first year PhD student in crop science at the Department of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden at SLU in Umeå.


The aim of my research is to further develop the use of sensor technologies for evaluating forage crops in both field experiments and large scale forage production. Remote sensing instruments, both handheld and mounted to platforms, will be used to estimate the quality and digestibility of the forage crops in already established fields.
