Early detection of problems: Identify problems early on, such as disease or pests, and take corrective action before the problem becomes too severe.
Improved efficiency: Optimize irrigation and fertilization schedules, reducing waste and improving the efficiency of the greenhouse.
Increased yield: By addressing problems early on, the operator can improve plant health and increase yield.
Record keeping: Thermal timelapse cameras can provide a record of plant growth and health over time, allowing the operator to track progress and make informed decisions about future operations.
Leaf temperature is an important indicator of plant health because it can provide insight into how well a plant is photosynthesizing and transpiring. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert light energy into chemical energy, and transpiration is the process by which plants lose water through their leaves. Both of these processes are essential for plant growth and health.
If the leaf temperature of a plant is lower than normal, it could indicate that the plant is not photosynthesizing at optimal levels. This could be due to a variety of factors, such as insufficient light, low air temperature, or disease. On the other hand, if the leaf temperature is higher than normal, it could indicate that the plant is experiencing stress due to high temperatures, drought, or disease. In either case, monitoring leaf temperature can help gardeners identify problems and take corrective action to ensure the health of their plants.
