Plant reflections may be key to early detection of treatment needs

...e way it reflects light. We can use this camera to detect stress at an earlier stage than by visual inspection. For instance, Nansen said, root rot is all underground, and generally plants are half dead when the damage becomes visible. But if you could see it earlier, you may have time to treat...
