Research Thesis Topic
Practical on-the-go Soil Moisture and Nutrient Measurement
Efficient application of nutrients to crops is essential in a precision farming system. An issue with the current industry practice is that all nutrient measurements are obtained from Laboratory tests, which is time consuming and costly. The aim of the project would be to develop an on the go sensor that can monitor soil Nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. The project would suit someone with a soil science background or Electrical/electronic background or both.
