The free 60-minute online plant imaging webinar will look at a range of plant imaging techniques and some of the advantages it offers for trait quantification and remote sensing in crops. It will be of interest to growers, producers, plant breeders, innovative SMEs, academics, and large ag companies interested in digital plant phenotyping.
CHAP’s Phenotyping Laboratory is run in partnership with Rothamsted Research and the event will provide insights into this state-of-the-art facility and the specialist expertise on offer, all of which is available for both grant-funded and commercial projects.
CHAP's resident phenotyping expert, Dr. Tom Ashfield, will showcase the lab’s high-tech equipment and explain how digital phenotyping can be used to evaluate new chemistries or bio-control agents for pests, pathogens, or weed control; screen germplasm for novel disease resistance traits; and determine ‘spectral signatures’ for specific diseases for use in remote sensing applications. Delegates will be presented with real-life examples of the benefits of imaging, from SMEs who have already made the most of the lab’s expertise.
There will also be an explanation of the hi-tech kit supporting this scientific excellence from a leading equipment provider, and of course, there will be an all-important opportunity for participants to quiz our experts.
