"Planting" optical fibers along with trees: can optical fiber sensors benefit Precision Agriculture?

Stavros Pissadakis
IESL, Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) (Greece)


Optical fiber sensors (OFSs) constitute a mature sensing technology for several application fields spanning from Biomedicine to Industrial Instrumentation. The implementation of OFSs into the field of Precision Agriculture gradually increases, while generating new opportunities for endusers (farmers and agronomists), and photonic innovators. Nonetheless, the application of OFSs into the domain of Precision Agriculture still has to address specific points related to the techno-economical parameters dominating such an implementation, the type of the technologies used, and the agricultural practices where optical fiber sensors can offer a unique competitive advantage.
