What is ICL Leaf and Crop Advisor?
Based on XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) & NIR (Near Infrared Spectroscopy), ICLeaf is an innovative technology that removes the need for chemicals and uses X-rays to measure nutrients in leaves, petioles, and soil. Using this technology, one can perform qualitative as well as quantitative nutrient analysis. A technique called XRF & NIR is used for determining the elemental composition of a sample without requiring any type of wet chemistry.
The ICL CROP ADVISOR helps us get crop yields targeted based on water and leaf petiole analysis, and helps us meet crop nutrient requirements based on growth stage.
Prof. Uri Yermiyahu, Interim Head, ARO Volcani Institute, State of Israel said “ICL’s vision is to develop innovative products and impactful solutions to meet all life stages and transform the world for a healthier and sustainable future to make an impact in the world of food, agriculture, and industrial products and advance humanity for a sustainable future.”
