Motivations:

As I was driving through Southern California and its various farms, I pondered how inefficiently they were running. In most places, it isn't much of a concern, but California tends to run into issues with droughts and water usage. One of the people I was driving with remarked that we should be using modern technology to make it more efficient, but that very little work was being done on it. This is my first foray into agricultural technology, but I intend to use this experience as a base to develop other projects.
