Digital plant assessments – perspectives in time of partial lab closure
The Corona virus-related lockdown kept you off your lab, and you missed assessing your important plants? Now, it is the time to consider digital imaging technology. Let automatic camera technology collect image data even in times when only a minimum of persons is present on site, and do the analyses from remote, or at a later point in time. The Corona lockdown is an extremely exceptional event, of course, however in normal life, holidays, business travel, or sickness similarly lead to temporally absence from the lab. So, there are many reasons to engage digital assistants that can monitor the plant performance while investigators are not physically present in the lab.
