Abstract
Nowadays, precision agriculture has allowed a spatial characterization in many common agricultural tasks. The use of this new agricultural tendency has enabled a reduction of inputs to be just applied or sprayed in places where they are needed. Additionally to considering the spatial distribution within the field, it is also important to take into consideration the three-dimensional within these agronomical spaces. This second approach will enable an assessment within the selected areas with the objective of applying the correct dose according to the volume or target size. By means of ultrasonic sensors, it is possible to apply phytosanitary treatments exclusively on the trees. Moreover, with the use of a LIDAR device that allows on-the-go calculation of leaf mass or volume for each tree detected, it would be possible to adapt the sprayed dose. LIDAR data used during this study were obtained through the use of a tree and laser simulator software "SimLidar", which allowed the development of processed data without the necessity of any field trial.
