  2. 2. Non-Destructive Biomass and Relative Growth Rate Estimation in Aeroponic Agriculture using Machine Learning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Oskar Åström; [2022]
    Keywords : Machine Learning; Image Analysis; Aeroponics; Hydroculture; Relative Growth Rate; Multi-variate Regression; Neural Network; ResNet; Plant Growth; Plant Physiology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Optimising plant growth in a controlled climate requires good measurements of both biomass (measured in grams) and relative growth rate (measured in grams of growth per day and gram of plant). In order to do this efficiently and continuously on an individual level during plant development, this has to be done non-destructively and without frequent and labor intensive weighing of plant biomass.

    Abstract : Sjukdom på grödor orsakad av bakterier kan bidra till ekonomiska förluster för bönder samt brist på mat, därför är det viktigt att utveckla nya hållbara sätt att motverka och behandla grödor mot bakterier. Idag är det mest vanliga tillvägagångssättet antibiotika men detta är inte hållbart p.g.a uppkomst av antibiotikaresistens. READ MORE
