This chapter covers applications and advances in the use of optical spectroscopic instrumental methods to sensing fruit nutrition (e.g., nitrogen, water, and carbohydrates). The literature on detection methods based on optical methods such as infrared (IR) spectroscopy toward fruit nutrition is sparse, and thus, this chapter addresses and consolidates some of the recent applications and research in the field. The chapter is organized to provide a general introduction about IR and multivariate data analysis methods and to give examples of the applications of these methods to measure and monitor fruit plant nutrition.
