For corn growers, the decision of when and how much nitrogen fertilizer to apply is a perennial challenge. Scientists at the University of Illinois have shown that nanosatellites known as CubeSats can detect nitrogen stress early in the season, potentially giving farmers a chance to plan in-season nitrogen fertilizer applications and alleviate nutrient stress for crops. “Using this technol Source: NanoDaily.com http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Nanosatellites_improve_detection_of_early_season_corn_nitrogen_stress_999.html
