Development of a Portable Spectrometer to Analyze Potato Plant Nutrient Deficiencies

How Picketa leverages INO’s expertise for more efficient proof-of-concept development. 

Synthetic fertilizers harm the environment. They contaminate water and emit greenhouse gases. Although chemical fertilizer use continues to grow in Canada, the fertilizer’s cost continues to rise.

Therefore, a farmer must use fertilizer wisely; not too much, not too little. Picketa Systems wants to equip agronomists and growers with a portable solution to analyze potato crop nutritional needs.
