Plant Nutrient Detection

Provide accurate and real-time insights to your customers!

The nutrient budget of plants is the foundation of their growth. With Plant Nutrient Detection Spacenus built a tool to determine the current nutrient status of plants using just a smartphone photo of a plant. Farmers can simply use their smartphone and take a picture of a plant - within seconds the results are available.
