Integrated Gigahertz Ultrasonic Imager for Soil: Towards Targeted Water and Pesticide Delivery for Biomass Production
Project Innovation + Advantages:
The project aims to demonstrate that GHz sonic imaging provides a comprehensive solution to describe subsurface plant growth. Geegah’s system will facilitate improving biofuel plant yields and can be useful across a wide variety of agriculture applications. These findings may lead to new models in precision agriculture and an integrated system for farming.
America’s farms are a strategic asset critical to national food and energy security. Using farmland more efficiently will enable increased production of feedstocks for fuel, food, feed, and carbon management.
The technology will provide pathways to reduce pesticides and water use in biofuel feedstock production and through greater efficiency reduce energy demands and climate emissions.
