There is a critical demand for more sustainable agriculture practices to increase crop yields to meet the demand for a rapidly growing population.
However, farmers are facing many obstacles, such as extreme temperatures, soil degradation, and drought that are expected to worsen as the climate changes. Increased sustainable agricultural practices are needed to ensure high yields that utilize minimal inputs and are minimally destructive to the land.
Plant health monitoring is one such method to increase yields and decrease environmental impact. Using low-cost, in-field methods, water level, soil quality, and presence of pathogens and pests could be constantly monitored. Expensive agrichemicals and water can be used in a directed manner for optimal plant growth.
