. Moderate water stress reduces plant growth and elongation in many species and may be used as a substitute for chemical growth retardants in commercial greenhouses. For instance, Burnett and van Iersel (2008) used a capacitance sensor-automated irrigation

Thermography, or IR imaging, measures the radiation bands from 9,000 to 14,000 nm using a sensor array in which each sensor is equitable with the pixel of a digital image. Each pixel in the digital image contains the emitted IR energy of the object
