Eastern Canadian Plant Phenotyping Platform Home Page

Focused on the sustainability and productivity of Canadian agriculture now and in coming decades



The Eastern Canadian Plant Phenotyping Platform (ECP3) provides a vast array of infrastructure with advanced phenomics/phenotyping technologies. The platform is designed for flexibility - allowing researchers to phenotype a broad range of crop plants under diverse growth conditions such as abiotic and biotic stresses, from plate samples to crops, in controlled, semi-controlled, and field environments.

Funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the ECP3 is a collaborative initiative between McGill University and the University of Sherbrooke.

Some of the ECP3 equipment is already available. Other components will be available in the coming year.
