Abstract


One of the growth factors of corn plant is fertilizer according to nitrogen fertilizer requirement. The identification of nitrogen fertilizer requirement in corn plant can be done by measuring the green leaf level using Color Leaf Manual, using TCS3200 color sensor combined with Arduino Uno Board microcontroller, and information. In this study a tool was created that could automatically measure the amount of fertilizer needed for corn per hectare. The results of the measurements displayed on the LCD 2x16 bits Micro made a measurement  of  fertilizer  based  on  leaf  color  for  corn plants. By taking  the RGB value  from the leaf  that comes through the color sensor and then compared with the RGB value in the leaf color chart that has been saved in microcontroller  will  get  the  information  of  the  fertilizer dosage needed. The level of truth of the measuring instrument of fertilizer can be categorized good enough with the level of accuracy reached 82%.
