Plant nutrient analysis is an interesting field for SCiO. Further experimentation and model development is needed in order to confirm feasibility for scanning a specific ingredient. This can be done with our SCiO Dev ToolKit, which allows you to collect your own database and use our various purpose built tools for analysis and model creation.
Two things should be taken into consideration when working towards this application. First, SCiO can only detect components in concentrations which are above 1%, so some micro-nutrients will not be detectable.
This requires further research. In addition, it should be noted that building the database for such an application requires access to samples and their chemical characteristics.
