Abstract A real-time crop sensor for site specific input application is the new innovation in the field of precision agriculture. At least three different type of crop sensors,viz.. Soil Doctor, N-Senior and Green Seeker have been used in different field crops. The key advantage of all these systems is that they do not need recommendation maps. However, no published data is available on Soil Doctor adoption by farmers due to company’s aggressiveness for protective patent rights. The N-Sensor is being used mainly for wheat and other small grain crops. However, one of the key limitations of N-Sensor is ambient light source. Handheld Green Seeker sensor is the latest addition to the list of crops sensors. The active light source is a major advantage of the Green Seeker sensor. Our preliminary observations on NDVI in relation to canopy development and crop growth in sugarcane are very encouraging and we envisage a potential scope of Green Seeker optical sensor for monitoring crop growth in order to adjust timing and dose of N application for maximizing cane and sugar productivity.
