High Throughput Phenotyping Solutions

Phenotyping studies require robust statistics, and high sample numbers are key to provide a solid data base. Thus, automatic handling strongly supports the image and data acquisition in high throughput solutions. Thereby, either sensing equipment moves towards the samples (sensor-to-plant), or the plants are transported towards the cameras (plant-to-sensor). Plant-to-sensor allows optimised image acquisition conditions in dedicated cabinets with top-and-side view, but demands for moving the plants. Sensor-to-plant keeps the plants at their place, and top-view imaging equipment passes by the growing area.
