The growing need for an appropriate utilization of the various environmental parameters for the plant growth in order to meet the food requirement of the growing population originated the main cause for the development of the 16 bit Microcontroller Based Plant Photosynthesis Measurement System. In this work PIC24FJ128GA010 Microcontroller is used along with the sensors including Carbon-Dioxide (CO2) sensor, Temperature sensor, PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation) sensor, Flow sensor, Humidity sensor and Pressure sensor. All these sensors independently will be capable enough to measure various leaf parameters related to the photosynthesis process such as leaf temperature, pressure, humidity, light intensity etc. The developed system will be low cost environmental parameters optimization for enhancing crop growth and yield using the proposed photosynthesis measurement system which is rugged and compact one.
