Project description

To incraese the yields and financial returns for the Sri lanka farmers, spatial characterization of the inherent soil quality is required to delineate relatively homogeneous within-field land management units. this project aims at obtaining this goal by implementing non-invasive soil sensor based on electromagnetic induction which is being pulled in deatail over the soil surface.
