Plant Phenotyping

Since 1998, LemnaTec has led the development of plant phenotyping technology. Today our equipment is used by scientists throughout the world to analyse 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.

  • LemnaTec’s phenotyping software completes the picture at the Vienna Biocenter

    LemnaTec OS, the advanced phenotyping software system from global biotech specialist LemnaTec GmbH, has been deployed at the Vienna Biocenter Core Facilities with a growth chamber designed to simulate different climates and stress conditions. An example movie shows how the analysis works in Vienna.

  • Deep field phenotyping becomes reality at Rothamsted Research

    In partnership with LemnaTec, the global plant phenotyping specialist, scientists at Rothamsted Research have implemented a Field Scanalyzer capable of continuously monitoring the development of crops under field conditions.

    The facility will be used initially to understand the development of numerous pre-breeding wheat lines that have been generated through the Wheat Genetic Improvement Network (WGIN) programme supported by Defra and the Wheat Initiative Strategic Programme (WISP), funded by the BBSRC and led by the John Innes Centre in collaboration with Rothamsted Research and other university partners.

    Dr Malcolm Hawkesford, Head of Plant Biology and Crop Science at Rothamsted, tells the story so far.
