- ... Interest in active optical sensors (AOS) for guiding N fertilizer management of crops like wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) has grown rapidly since their introduction in the mid-1990s. Recently, AOS have been used to assess water status of crops in addition to plant N status. Specific vegetation indices (VIs) might assess N stress while minimizing effects of water stress. A 2-yr study (2013–2014) was ...
