Spectral reflectance for measuring crop N status

Nutrient solution concentration for hydroponically grown lettuce in plant factories and greenhouses is adjusted based on electrical conductivity (EC) of the recycled solution. A better approach is to adjust nutrient solution concentration using plant-based measurements.   We are conducting further research to study whether crop reflectance signature can be used to identify nutrient requirements of crops
