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
- Real-time kinematic (RTK) high precision navigation
- Equipped to provide:
- 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.
