Terahertz Sensing at Nano-Scale for Future Agriculture
The ever-growing demand for food with increasing population demands for intervention through new technological solution to increase food production in limited resources. This paper presents a review of various sensing technologies for intervention and presents the comparison of the accuracy and sensitivity of terahertz (THz) sensing technique with other methods which is found to be more effective, feasible and productive. The realization of water as an important and fundamental component to the timely growth of plant leaves, in this paper some preliminary results of applying terahertz sensing technology to the plant science to estimate the water content at the cellular level in various leaves has been presented. Hence, shows the potential of using THz sensing as a promising candidate for future agriculture technology.
