Sensors that measure the electrical capacitance of leaves

Leaf sensor

Plant-based sensors that measure the thickness and electrical capacitance of leaves show great promise for telling farmers when to activate their irrigation systems, preventing both water waste and parched plants, according to researchers in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences. Continuously monitoring plant “water stress” is particularly critical in arid …
