  1. SBIR Phase I: Field Mobile Soil Nitrate Sensor for Precision Fertilizer Management

    SBC: N-Sense, LLC            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project stems from the need to substantially improve nitrogen (N) use efficiency in crop production and thereby improve profitability for farmers, while simultaneously reducing the adverse effects of agriculture on the environment. Currently, less than half of the N fertilizer applied to agricultural fields i ...
