The Cooperative Research Centre for High Performance Soil is developing a soil “eNose”: a simple and easy to use device which will monitor the activity of soil biological communities by measuring the gases produced in the soil. We want to hear your opinion on the eNose design and how it will work best for you.
The project is led by Shane Powell and Robert Hardy is leading the design of the eNose prototype. Both researchers are from the University of Tasmania and the Soil CRC.
Soils For Life is a partner with the Soil CRC.
