Plant Phenotyping

Since 1998, LemnaTec has led the development of plant phenotyping technology. Today our equipment is used by scientists throughout the world to identify traits and to accurately measure the development of plants.

Using data derived from digital images, our systems enable scientists to accurately measure the effects of climate and environment on plant development and to characterise genomic functionality. This information has enormous value in scientific research, precision agriculture, breeding, environmental monitoring and for the development of treatments for cultivation.


By combining state-of-the-art software with highly reliable machine platforms, LemnaTec has created a comprehensive range of plant phenotyping solutions for use in the laboratory, greenhouse and field. These systems are capable of delivering highly accurate and repeatable data sets across thousands of different applications.
