5s2: Life cycle assessment of organic sweet potato production using lidar sensor measurements
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are inevitably linked to agricultural production and subsequently to climate change, and thus efforts to mitigate the associated environmental impacts are urgently required. Remote sensing and in particular the use of the innovative light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology, offers a unique opportunity to measure and in turn quantify carbon emissions at farm level. In this context, a life cycle assessment (LCA) study regarding organic sweet potato cultivation in Crete, Greece, was performed using on-site LiDAR measurements (CO2 and N2O emissions) in order to determine environmental impacts and energy consumption.
