LemnaTec Scanalyzers provide a comprehensive range of phenotyping research platforms from bench-top enclosures to systems that monitor large fields.
When we started PhenoDays back in 2011, digital phenotyping was a relatively new branch of plant science. We set out to create an international forum for the plant phenomics research community, to bring scientists together from all over the world to discuss new ideas and to share information. This proved to be very successful and PhenoDays quickly became an important annual event for hundreds of p
LemnaTec has developed an automated system to study the reaction of plants subjected to drought or restricted water supplies.
Hyperspectral imaging, the process of capturing images from beyond the visible light spectrum, is widely used for remote imaging of plants. It allows scientists to extract detailed information about the composition and condition of plants under varying imaging conditions such as changing sunlight.
LemnaTec has unveiled the largest field robot in the world, capable of continuously monitoring the development of crops under real growing conditions.
LemnaTec has used its 3D Scanalyzer system to measure parameters that correlate to the biomass of maize, and other grain crops, in time course assessments during plant growth.
LemnaTec’s Chief Scientist Marcus Jansen gave a keynote lecture at the 11th SAPBA symposium organised by the Southern African Plant Breeders' Association in Stellenbosch. The range of applications presented at the conference was broad, ranging from seedlings of crops and vegetables to trees, large crops and fruits.
Greenhouse studies allow scientists to control and monitor key environmental parameters, such as temperature, illumination, humidity and watering, throughout the lifetime of sample plants. However, a significant challenge to greenhouse experiments is the achievable plant density, which is frequently far lower than in the field.
