Nutri-Stat addresses the need of SMEPs with a cost-effective and real-time soil nutrient sensing system using ISEs integrated in an LTCC based micro Total Analysis System. The technological device will be composed of a complex soil probe combined with a data-logger for the measurement and recording of the concentration of the macronutrients Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) present in the soil. Nutri-Stat will also read electrical conductivity and pH levels in soil.
The Nutri-Stat system shall also feature user-friendly software to assist in soil nutrient management. The positive impacts of this tool will contribute to environmental and financial sustainability, whilst significantly improving the quality standards of agricultural produce across the EU.
Nutri-Stat will provide farmers with constant monitoring of fields, tailored crop analysis and disease management, making information on the nutrient status of arable land for the first time ever, easily accessible and available to the farmer anytime anywhere.
