Abstract

World population growth and desertification are the most severe issue to agricultural food production. Smart agriculture is a promising solution to ensure food security. The use of sensors to monitor crop production can help farmers improve the yield and reduce water consumption. Here we propose a study where the electrical impedance of green plants' stem is analyzed in vivo, along with environmental conditions. In particular, the variations associated with the daily cycle are highlighted. These analyses lead to the possibility of understanding plant status directly from stem impedance.
