Our team proposes to address resource management issues related to water and nutrient applications, as well as to energy use. Engineers will use sensors to collect improved information about the plant status, the growing environment and outdoor conditions and costs. I will analyze the costs and returns of using those sensors based on data collected. We want to develop and implement environmental control strategies that optimize resource management and maximize crop quality and yield, while also maximizing the economic return to the grower.
