Short Description

PHENOPlant is designed for non-invasive, morphometric and physiological hight-throughput plant phenotyping of mid-size crop plants as well as Arabidopsis and will be fully integrated into a state-of-the-art walk-in phytotron providing highly homogeneous plant growth conditions.

Furthermore, the platform facilitates precise environmental (live) simulations across different climate zones as well as controlled plant stress experiments. Cutting-edge sensors include multi-excitation PAM kinetic chlorophyll fluorescence, RGB, VNIR/SWIR hyperspectral, thermal and 3D.

Within the planned infrastructure, plants are transported on conveyor belts from the growth area to the imaging cabinets equipped with state-of-the-art sensors. The imaging units are physically seperated from the growth area (two individually controlled phytotrons) facilitating the parallelization of measurements via a sample loop and thus improving the throughput, flexibility and sensor utilization.
