Croptune, a Real-Time Decision-Support Mobile Application for Continuous Monitoring of Nitrogen Deficiencies and Fertilization Recommendations
Haifa Group, Israel

Nitrogen fertilization/nutrition of desert-growing crops is challenging due to the soil structure that tends to be light/sandy, characterized by very low cation exchange capacity and organic matter content. Continued monitoring of Nitrogen content in crops with the Croptune app enables accurate timing and adjustment of fertilization amount, thus ensuring optimal crop growth and development while avoiding salinity build-up in water and soil, losses, and environmental contamination caused by nitrogen overdosing.
