Multi-scale field phenotyping
Field phenomics, measuring traits in situ in multi-plot field experiments either by drones or Field Scanalyzer.
- Field Scanalyzer
- Handheld 3D scanners
Traits measured by drone – canopy height, cover and temperature, spectral reflectance. From the reflectance many published indices can be calculated.
Traits measured by the Field Scanalyzer – canopy height and architecture, canopy cover, ears/image, canopy temperature, spectral reflectance, active canopy fluorescence
Traits measured by handheld 3D scanner – length, volume, and basal, central and apical part of the wheat spike, and canopy architecture
- Developing algorithms for any trait of interest
- Deciphering yield components through wheat life cycle for quantitative genetics
