Infield High-throughput Plant Phenotyping

Breeding of crops has to be more efficient to fulfil the requirement of feeding over nine billion people in the world. In order to improve breeding efficiency, phenotypic traits of crops need to be quickly and accurately measured in the field, and thus requiring new technologies of infield high-throughput phenotyping of crops. Currently, our lab is working on the design and implementation of the high-throughput plant phenotyping (HTP) platforms including ground-based sensing platform and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
