Condition monitoring of ornamental plants with microdisplays and neural networks to optimize fertilization

Conservation of resources and reliable yields are just as essential in plant
cultivation as in other branches of agriculture. In order to optimize fertilization
processes in ornamental plant cultivation in the future and thus protect the
environment, researchers at the Fraunhofer FEP together with the Saxon State Office
for Environment, Agriculture and Geology (LfULG) have been researching a
technology for the early detection of nutrient deficiencies or surpluses in
ornamental plants in the ZierSens project. The use of bidirectional OLED microdisplays in combination with neural networks should make it possible to optimize fertilization processes in the future.
