Maintaining Ecological Integrity: Real Time Crop Field Monitoring Using Leaf Colour Chart
Drip irrigation is the method widely used in the precision agriculture, which reduce the water conception as it irrigates water to the plant’s root region. Another method is fertilizer made as drip, irrigated along with water. The traditional method gives the better yield but present scenario says soil pollution in traditional agriculture practice is drastic due to water flooding, over fertilization, high usage of pesticide. This project provides a system based computation technique to reduce pollution level, an efficient precision agriculture for small scale farming, and reliable data collection from the paddy field. Plant health is monitored using Leaf Colour Chart (LCC) and necessary fertilization is done by actuator deployed in the field. pH of the field varies with temperature and fertilizer used, which decide level soil pollution.
