Based on automated root detection from thousands of fields with different crops, AquaSpy™ has established a database of detailed statistical data on plant root growth. Understanding where the active root zone is located is a crucial component in understanding nutrient uptake for the different crop types.
AquaSpy™ tracked root growth and crop behavior of both water and nutrients though a 48” profile gathering data points from 12 sensors (each sensor 4 inches apart). The data confirms that root growth, in conjunction with having the right moisture and nutrients available in the active root zone, is a major part of driving yield for the grower.
A strong correlation between plant date and root growth was also detected.
