Sensors for Tomorrow's Precision Agriculture 961760

This paper describes sensors and systems developed, or under development, by researchers at Purdue University including: an automated soil nutrient mapping system; a real-time acoustic soil texture sensor; an improved, real-time soil organic matter (SOM) sensor; a real-time soil compaction sensor; and an animal manure application monitoring and control system. Issues to consider for sensor use and development, criteria for evaluating the potential for successful sensor implementation, and likely future sensors for site-specific crop management (SSCM) are also discussed.
