What is plant phenotyping?
Plant phenotyping plays a pivotal role in plant research, encompassing the measurement and analysis of various plant traits, including growth rate, leaf size, and color.
This practice enables researchers to gain insights into the influence of genetic and environmental factors on plant development and productivity. By enhancing crop yields and cultivating more resilient crop varieties, this knowledge holds significant potential for the agricultural sector.
Phenotyping methods encompass both manual techniques and automated imaging and sensor systems.
- Plant breeders and geneticists: identify desirable traits and characteristics in plants, such as disease resistance or high yield, that can be used to develop crop varieties.
- Plant scientists and researchers: understand how plants respond to different environmental conditions, such as drought or high temperatures, and how plants interact with other organisms.
- Crop protection product developers: evaluate the efficacy of crop protection products on different plant species and varieties by measuring changes in plant growth, development and physiology.
- Bio stimulants product developers: evaluate and improve bio stimulant effectiveness by measuring changes in plant growth and physiology.
