Soil Sensing Platform

Entry Summary: An overview of the problem and solution.
Intensive agriculture is necessary to feed a growing world, but it is destroying our farmland. In this project we will use novel sensing technology and cloud intelligence to increase the yield farmers can get from their land, using no more fertilizer than is necessary. We achieve this by combining electrochemical sensing innovations with statistical algorithms to measure and understand soil nitrogen levels instantaneously, and provide optimised nitrogen fertilisation instructions.
