Francelino Rodrigues

Associate Scientist, Precision Agriculture

Francelino Rodrigues is a Precision Agriculture Associate Scientist in CIMMYT’s Sustainable Intensification Program in Mexico. He has been working in precision agriculture and remote sensing since 2004, including during his MSc, PhD and Postdoctoral studies, and has experience with contrasting cropping systems (coffee, sugarcane, cereals) in a range of countries.

His research focuses on the analysis and interpretations of spatial and temporal agricultural data sets built up by the use of proximal and remote sensing technologies, proving concepts together with colleagues and scaling them up into decision support tools for farmers. He is also interested in the use of such technologies for high throughput maize and wheat phenotyping.
