Field-based Phenomics

Proximal and remote sensing systems are used to evaluate crop phenotypes as a part of improving crop breeding and production efforts. Research involves utilization of sensor technologies for non-invasive, rapid, continuous monitoring of plant responses to environment, abiotic and biotic stressors, and other applications. The sensing technologies (digital and multispectral imaging, thermal imaging, LIDAR) are applied to evaluate crop vigor, disease symptoms, crop water stress, and other traits in field, row, and specialty crops.
