Abstract

- A pilot simulation and field study demonstrated potential for machine vision to estimate in-season soil and leaf nitrogen status using cameras and image analysis for real-time sensing and control
- The modelled soil and leaf nitrogen were estimated with >80% accuracy using machine vision-detectable crop features estimated in combination with known underlying soil variability
- Further trials will evaluate and refine the machine vision system at the Future Farm core sites
