Improving the Future of Smart Agriculture with Spectroscopy

Posted on: June 24th, 2022

Climate change and population expansion have a direct impact on agriculture. An increasing number of people need to be fed but changing weather patterns can cause complete crops to fail. Inevitably, farms must produce more with less, and frequently under increasingly difficult conditions. Growing seasons are shorter, there are fewer resources such as clean water,…

Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for soil analysis

Posted on: May 30th, 2022

For over 120 years, agriculturalists have been aware of the importance of soil testing, particularly elemental analysis, to ensure the health and productivity of crops. Historically this has been accomplished by randomly sampling soil across a representative region of the field and sending them off to a laboratory to be analyzed using chromatography, mass spectrometry,…
