Today’s data-driven agriculture demands access to high-resolution spatial and temporal soil data streams. Soil spectroscopy can help fill this data gap. Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy is becoming an indispensable tool in soil science; however, several technical challenges still limit its broader application outside of research projects.
SoilSpec4GG is a USDA-funded Food and Agriculture Cyberinformatics Tools Coordinated Innovation Network with two overarching goals:
