Red, high-clearance farm machine with hydraulic height adjustment, transparent cab and boom lift

Field-based Plant Phenomics Platform based at McGill's Emile A. Lods Agronomy Research Centre

Field-Based High-Throughput Plant Phenotyping Platform

  • Designed to accommodate variety of crops
  • High-clearance
  • Real-time kinematic (RTK) high precision navigation
  • Equipped to provide:
    • Morphometric
    • Infrared
    • Visible (RGB) light analysis
    • Chlorophyll fluorescence kinetics imaging
    • Thermal imaging
    • Hyperspectral imaging
    • NIR imaging


This vehicle platform has hydraulically adjustable height and wheel-base width allowing for imaging of plants from emergence to 2m height. The phenotyping platform is designed to measure multiple traits and characteristics of a variety of crops; monitoring growth and development in response to biotic and abiotic stresses in natural field environments. This high-clearance system can perform: morphometric analysis, infrared and visible (RGB) light analysis, chlorophyll fluorescence kinetics imaging, thermal imaging, hyperspectral imaging, and NIR imaging.



This field-based high-throughput plant phenotyping platform (HTPPP) is anticipated to be available for the 2021 field season. Project inquiries are welcome.
