Phenolic compounds are secondary metabolites which are widely distributed in the plant kingdom and involved in defense mechanisms responding against biotic and abiotic stresses, including those related to drought, salinity, low temperatures, heavy metal exposure, or UV radiation.
Since phenolic compounds are an integral part of the human diet including fresh and cooked vegetables and fruits, legumes, spices, and beverages .In recent years, the interest for these bioactives has largely increased due to their health benefits and their impact on food quality.
Metabolomics is a powerful and indispensable tool for simultaneous quantitation of secondary metabolites in order to investigate the influence of variety and agronomic conditions on the biosynthesis of bioactive compounds in plants.
The internet has become integrated and important in our everyday lives. In addition, internet of things (IoT) where things communicate and interact (machine to machine). Internets of Things (IoT) present an enormous opportunity and can solve many problems. Smart Farming is among IoT applications, it helps farmers to increase production with minimal losses and lower costs.
In this course, the IoT technology will be studied and applied to get the optimum of smart hydroponic vegetables growing system by reducing fresh water utilization, and improving agricultural productivity and enhancing bioactive content in salad vegetable by the hydroponic vegetables growing system automation and remote monitoring.
