Development of efficient agricultural device to evaluate the soil parameters for precision agriculture
Soil is a precious resource that we need to manage carefully. Almost 60% of crop yield depends on soil fertility. Hence it is necessary to test soil on a regular basis. A lot of mistakes are made in fertilization and planting. Soil fertility is determined by the soil’s chemical, physical and biological properties. Soil tests are used to determine the soil’s nutrient content and pH level. However in current scenario, to get the soil tested a farmer has to go to the soil testing laboratory and find out the results, which many farmers find difficult.
