Recent developments in miniature, low-power wireless sensors has provided systems capable of long-term deployment and continuous operation. Plant sciences will be benefited by the application of such a tailored suite of sensors, in which the output data will inform real-time changes to growth conditions in order to minimize cost and maximize yield. This proposal develops a physical and computational framework that will determine the necessary suite of plant physiology sensors and uses the collected data to model the complex interactions between phenotypical response and growth conditions. The contributions of this award will facilitate the broad adoption of new plant physiology sensors and analytic platforms for plant/crop management.
