Measuring soil health indicators (SHIs), particularly soil total nitrogen (TN), is an important and challenging task that affects farmers’ decisions on timing, placement, and quantity of fertilizers applied in the farms. Most existing methods to measure SHIs are in-lab wet chemistry or spectroscopy-based methods, which require significant human input and effort, time-consuming, costly, and are low-throughput in nature. To address this challenge, we develop an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven… 
Spectroscopic analysis reveals that soil phosphorus availability and plant allocation strategies impact feedstock quality of nutrient-limited switchgrass
The perennial native switchgrass adapts better than other plant species do to marginal soils with low plant-available nutrients, including those with low phosphorus (P) content. Switchgrass roots and
Towards Establishing a Predictive Machine Learning Model in Agriculture applying Convolutional Neural Networks
There is currently inconclusive evidence of mapping soil properties to images, provided that the images were very similar in textures / colors, but the possibility of enhancing predictions using ML is confirmed.
LIBS Monitoring and Analysis of Laser-Based Layered Controlled Paint Removal from Aircraft Skin
Reliability and controllability of selective removal of multiple paint layers from the surface of aircraft skin depend on effective online monitoring technology. An analysis was performed on the

Influence of soil, crop residue, and sensor orientations on NDVI readings
Site-specific in-season corn (Zea mays L.) nitrogen (N) rate recommendations based on remote sensing can increase nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) but most approaches require the corn to be at the V8
Nitrogen Status Assessment for Variable Rate Fertilization in Maize through Hyperspectral Imagery
The proposed operational methodology is promising for precision farming since it represents an innovative attempt to derive a variable rate N fertilization map based on the actual crop N status from an aerial hyperspectral image.

In-season determination of corn (Zea mays L.) N requirements via remote sensing may help optimize N application decisions and improve profit, fertilizer use efficiency, and environmental quality. The
Calibrating Corn Color from Aerial Photographs to Predict Sidedress Nitrogen Need
Supplemental N need of corn (Zea mays L.) and other crops can vary substantially within and among fields. Corn color is sensitive to N status and may provide a means to accurately match N fertilizer
QuickBird satellite versus ground-based multi-spectral data for estimating nitrogen status of irrigated maize
In-season nitrogen (N) management of irrigated maize (Zea mays L.) requires frequent acquisition of plant N status estimates to timely assess the onset of crop N deficiency and its spatial
Evaluation of Digital Photography from Model Aircraft for Remote Sensing of Crop Biomass and Nitrogen Status
Remote sensing is a key technology for precision agriculture to assess actual crop conditions. Commercial, high-spatial-resolution imagery from aircraft and satellites are expensive so the costs may
