The concentration of fertilizers, biostimulants, microorganisms, drugs and plant protection products affect the plant development, growth, and yields. Determining the optimal concentration of different treatments together with the watering regime (i.e. drought conditions) is a great challenge from both an agronomic and environmental aspect. For example, the efficient application of fertilizers optimize plant performance, however over-fertilization will contaminate the soil and adjacent water bodies (groundwater, lakes, etc.).

The simple to use Plantarray hardware enables users to control any irrigation-borne treatment concentration (including microorganism) as well as its duration, applied to each pot in the array and with any soil (e.g. sand, field soils or potting medium). Plant response to the treatments is analyzed by the Plantarray software and presented in an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. This enables plants to be graded according to their absolute as well as relative response to the different treatment applications and the determining of the concentration-response curve for each plant in the array.

The ability of Plantarray to apply, monitor and evaluate the effect of different chemicals on plant performance saves time, manpower, unnecessary experiments and provides an immediate proof of concept for new products.
