FarmBits Podcast: Solving for N

In this week’s episode of FarmBits Podcast, Dr. Jonathan Claussen, Iowa State University Department of Mechanical Engineering associate professor, joins podcast hosts Samantha Teten and Jackson Stansell in the final installment of the nitrogen management technologies series to discuss measuring nitrogen in soil. Claussen’s research includes developing and testing soil nitrogen sensors that rely on an ion-selective membrane and communicate via telemetry. In this episode, Claussen chats about this technology and the challenges of sensing nitrogen in the soil environment, and shares his perspective on what is necessary to commercialize technology developed for biomedical applications for agriculture.
