Omg I love this. @nanocastro we should talk because we want to use the openflexure this winter for automated cell counts also but haven’t started cause we’re finishing other work. If you have any useful learnings so far would love to hear it.
We are running a public survey of Food and Soil quality from 25 sratesbin the US across 6 crops types to identify correlations between food nutrient density, soil quality, and farm practices. We’re also using that survey to attempt to calibrate two things 1) crop nutrient density and 2) soil total organic carbon using the 10 wavelength reflectometer.

Also @dusjagr check out the GOAT community also (forum.goatech.org) and specifically OpenTEAM (openteam.community). If you’re meeting big wigs, that’s a large scale, ardently open source collaboration that’s well funded and supported. May be a another useful reference for the naysayers.
