Android based application for rapid detection of biotic / abiotic stress in Agricultural plants

Some two decades back when my sister, Meera was working for her Doctoral Thesis titled “ Gene Identification and Extraction for Salt Stress in Paddy Plants”, I was super excited with the topic as I knew salt stress tolerant species will help a lot to farmers. It continues to be a hot topic even today given that majority of agricultural lands are susceptible to either drought or salt stress due to both biotic (like Sudden Death Syndrome) and abiotic factors (Iron deficiency Chlorosys).
