Plant root monitoring system can better care for plant root health
As we all know, the root is one of the most important organs in a plant. Plants absorb water, trace elements and other nutrients needed for growth through their roots. If there is a problem with the roots, the growth of the plant is bound to be affected. In particular, some pests, such as mole crickets, will eat the roots of crops, which will have a serious negative impact on the growth of crops. But the roots of plants are buried beneath the soil, and their growth is hard to observe directly. Observations are required using a plant root monitoring system with pulse scanning capability.
This plant root monitoring system can not only observe the growth state of crop roots, but also monitor the growth state of pests in the soil. Combined pest monitoring system can realize the three-dimensional monitoring of airborne pests and pests in soil. The pest situation can also be organized into an intuitive table, according to which growers can accurately understand the pest situation, and then take various measures to prevent the increase of pests. With the rapid development of smart agriculture, all kinds of intelligent equipment bring greater convenience.
Plant root growth monitoring
In addition to the growth of pests in the soil, the plant root monitoring system can also realize dynamic monitoring of the root growth state. Because plant growth is dynamic, you can’t take root images taken a month ago and infer current root growth. That would be a mistake. Only on time according to the point of the release of pulse signal, second to the plant root morphology. Only by analyzing the water content can we get effective feedback in time.
Growers can also adjust the intensity of irrigation and fertilization based on feedback. For example, when the root system is weak, it is not suitable to apply high concentration of fertilizer, which can cause root burning, which is not a good thing for the plant. Irrigation too often, or with too much water, can also lead to less oxygen in the soil. If the roots are weak, it’s easier because of the adverse situation. The resulting root rot situation, which is also very detrimental to the growth of plants.
